Healthcare providers, especially hospitals, historically have been insulated from the normal economic influences of supply and demand. They could rely on a steady stream of patients from their relationships with commercial and government payers. As a result, their growth strategy was focused primarily on their relationships with those payers.
As healthcare reform shifts more of the payment responsibility to individuals, consumers are finally becoming an integral and influential force in the selection of healthcare providers. Hospitals, health systems, and other providers that don’t put this newly influential consumer at the center of their growth strategies face erosion of their market share and potential irrelevance in the new retail healthcare market.
