Today’s healthcare leaders are juggling the demands and opportunities of a transforming and exceedingly complicated market: the transition to value-based care marches on, new business models are disrupting the status quo, and traditional providers are reinventing themselves. In a world where payment and care models are rapidly changing, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged hospital operations even more. If patient flow and census numbers weren’t top of mind before, they are now.
Health systems are searching for ways to innovate for cost and quality improvement. This last point certainly rings true for post-acute care, as health systems and health plans begin to view this industry segment in a new light—as one that can deliver more value and opportunity to their organization.
