Consolidation – A Trend Changing Healthcare As We Know It

Recently, healthcare has been changing rapidly. The way of doing things has changed because of the new legislation and the ever changing medical innovation forming new trends in the industry.

All the new healthcare trends combined with the cost pressures of the Affordable Care Act, are pushing healthcare in the direction of consolidation. Dr. Delos Cosgrove, the CEO of the Cleveland Clinic commented, “Hospitals are coming together in systems and systems are beginning to talk to systems.”

It’s not only costs that are affecting this new trend of consolidation. It’s also the increasing complexity of healthcare as a business. Scrounging up the knowledge to keep up with the systems and incentives to drive a practice is proving to be difficult.

The idea of losing practices to cost pressures and complexity can be scary, but there are other routes available.
