Healthcare transformation is the future. In a transformed state, many hospital beds will become obsolete, inpatient volume will decline sharply, and primary care visits will increase by as much as 80% while some specialty visits will decline by almost half.
Forward-thinking healthcare leaders are starting to recognize that healthcare transformation will require them to reassess the kinds of traditional planning approaches and assumptions they have historically relied on. That’s why they turn to Ascendient for help.
At Ascendient, healthcare transformation is more than a buzzword. It’s the guiding principle that informs everything we do. We begin each engagement by revisiting traditional assumptions about care delivery, competition, regulation, technology and geographic markets. We ask the hard questions other consulting firms don’t. This is what sets us apart.
Our approach isn’t about working harder or smarter or helping organizations get better at what they already do. It’s about helping healthcare leaders “see” how healthcare delivery will actually look in the future, and providing clear, actionable guidance so their organizations can prepare to survive and thrive in the new environment.
We believe the coming changes require a more highly integrated healthcare consulting approach – not one-off, siloed, engagements. At Ascendient, we treat strategy, planning and feasibility as one interrelated whole, so we can make connections and present options that others typically miss.
