The Next Decade in Healthcare – Increased Volumes and Shifts in Care Sites

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, provider organizations saw a steady decrease in non-emergency-related patient volumes. While those levels are starting to increase back to pre-pandemic numbers, in 2021 there was still a 5% decrease in inpatient volume compared to 2019. However, through future forecasts, things are looking up, not only for inpatient volumes but outpatient as well.

In the latest HealthLeaders Fact File, we outline:
  • Two major trends contributing to this increase
  • The shift in sites of care will continue but soften
  • Emergency departments will see an increase in volume this year alone
  • And more!
