Houston – Transwestern and IMEG Corp. today released a co-authored report, The Convergence of Healthcare Delivery in the U.S., which summarizes responses of thought leaders from
24 healthcare-related organizations to critical questions facing the future of healthcare in the United States.
Lisa Feeley, Vice President in Transwestern’s Healthcare Advisory Group who spearheaded the report, said, “By taking a comprehensive view of the industry, our goal was to provide multiple viewpoints that can help each of us, regardless of our role along the healthcare spectrum, better prepare to deliver products and services to clients that ultimately improve the patient experience.”
Participants in the project represented healthcare systems, medical campuses and providers; professionals in commercial real estate, architecture, engineering and construction; healthcare consultants and analysts; and providers of medical products and digital health solutions. Several dominant themes emerged, most notably:
The growing use of technology to drive down healthcare-related costs
The intense focus on patient-centered care
The importance of being nimble and transparent
The solidification of the value-based healthcare model
The rise of personalized medicine, outpatient care and home healthcare
The significance of generational differences when it comes to buying habits, timeliness expectations and other factors
Eric Vandenbroucke, Senior Principal at IMEG, said, “The convergence of all these factors underscores what we are living every day – healthcare is moving faster than ever before. This is an environment ripe for efficiencies and innovation, and collaborating to positively impact healthcare delivery is our shared goal.”
