“SHIFT TO PREVENTIVE & SHORT STAY SERVICES” A HEALTH CARE REVOLUTION IN PROGRESS….
According to McKinsey Global Institute analysis:
- Over the past decade, there has been a marked shift in the delivery of care from general practitioners (primary care physicians), to specialists.
- More than 65% of all healthcare services in the US are already being delivered in outpatient/short stay contexts.
- Outpatient/short stay care accounts for two-thirds of US healthcare spending, making it the fastest growing cost component.
- Within the outpatient category, the two largest and fastest growing sources of outpatient spending are same day hospital care and visits to physicians’ offices.
