FORECASTING: Discharges to decline 2 percent in 10 years

Our analytics are projecting a 2 percent decline in discharges over the next decade.  As a result, clients are challenging their perceived acute care footprint needs and increasingly reallocating resources to a variety of outpatient and virtual settings.”  Sg2

I always like to grab consultants’ forecasts – about nearly anything! – and feature them here.  However, it is doubly interesting when the forecasts are about hospital inpatient utilization.  This little snippet from Sg2 is part of an interesting conglomeration of opinion about the hospital of the future.   Becker’s Hospital Review interviewed 45 leaders with an interesting mix of affiliations – providers, consultants, vendors – about disruptors affecting the hospital field.

DISRUPTION: PwC’s disruption profiler survey tool

This is a 16-question survey that allows an organization to take the temperature of disruptive forces in its industry.  The questions fall into the categories of:

  • Customer behavior
  • Production
  • Distribution
  • Competitors
  • Regulation

In a related analysis based on input from 268 executives in various industries, PwC found that CEOs report CUSTOMERS to be a more significant source of disruption than any of the other factors listed above.

DISRUPTORS: ZocDoc joins others on top 50 disruptor list

This is the 5th year that CNBC has developed a list of private companies that have proved to be innovative disruptors in their market space.  This list focuses on start-ups that are challenging established large corporate competitors.  The top 5 companies listed include:

  1. Airbnb
  2. Lyft
  3. WeWork
  4. Grab
  5. Uptake Technologies

There is a patient-care-related company on the list – ZOCDOC.  This company allows patients to book physician office appointments similar to what OpenTable does for restaurant reservations.
