Our transformative model for healthcare delivery

Healthcare transformation is fine in theory, but what does it look like in practice? How does it change the focus and footprint of healthcare delivery? Our unique Healthytown model helps to answer the all-important questions.

Making a Better Model

More than a decade ago, Ascendient set out to do something audacious: Take all the tangled threads of healthcare transformation and weave them into a tapestry showing how care delivery will change at the individual community level.

We started with all the usual assumptions about demographics, utilization, and provider supply, then layered on the transformative effects of technology, consumerism, payment innovation, and regulatory reform.

What we found was a startling change in the way healthcare services are consumed. Depending on the community, predicted provider shortages can disappear within 10 years, while beds that seem like revenue drivers today might become expensive liabilities.

Our Healthytown™ model has already helped many clients better plan for a transformed future – managing the current needs in their community while re-thinking human and capital investments to account for the needs of tomorrow.
