Outpatient services have grown rapidly over the past 20 years as patients look for more convenient healthcare at lower costs. In fact, outpatient services now account for nearly 60% of hospital revenue.1

As the costs of inpatient care continue to rise at unsustainable rates, bringing outpatient services to patients is a long-term strategy that can attract more patients with commercial health coverage, while hedging against continued volume declines in inpatient admissions. Ambulatory care services also support the transition to value-based care.

Our strategic growth team consults with hospitals like yours to advise on outpatient service lines and programs. We help evaluate investment opportunities and choose the best services to offer, geographical placement, size, and target demographic base. From market evaluation to predictive investment models, we guide clients from insights to implementation.

Our ambulatory care approach

We review both qualitative and quantitative data to prepare the best ambulatory care service recommendation. This includes aggregated behavioral data (like social media), the spatial view of markets (service mix, proximity to thoroughfares), and lifestyle segmentation data.
