Seven Market Trends
JANUARY 4, 2012
I have selected seven topics for brief comments and predictions as we start 2012: 1. One quarter of all Americans, 73 million patients, are now covered under a managed care health insurance program. A series of vendors have sprung up to do just that for stroke care, mental health, hospitalist and intensivist services, and dermatology. Other health systems are looking closely at these developments and, if successful, will start on their own versions of virtual centers.
