HCB News: How do you think healthcare will change over the next decade?
I really think it’s going to change toward the prevention and management of diseases that are there. Patients go and complete all their annual healthcare visits. Diabetics do their regular maintenance. You’ll see a lot more in an outpatient setting as well. This past year and a half, since they’ve allowed total knees to be done in an outpatient setting, the procedure starts in the morning and you’re out by supper. Years ago, those were a two or three day stay, now you’re getting to go home within 24 hours. That experience will expand to other procedures. And lastly, I think we’ll also see a greater shift toward outcome-based medicine and away from fee-for-service. That will be the future. Back to HCB News
