Population health has changed the way we look at ambulatory investment. While in the past we looked for opportunities to expand market share and referral patterns to young insured populations, we are now challenged with improving the health of our highest utilizers. Many high utilizers are polychronic and dual eligible and have significant challenges regarding transportation and mobility. Today, investment is less about finding locations with fewer competitors and more about placing the appropriate services and caregivers where patients need them.
FreemanWhite has developed a number of recent tools to assess disease prevalence. Hotspotting allows us to identify health trends in a community to guide investment in ambulatory services. As we advance our ability to anticipate disease prevalence and utilization patterns, we lead the way in tying these forecasts to facilities implications.
Through demographic analysis, our tools help you allocate your resources to the locations where they can be most utilized. By correlating multiple population variables for each market under consideration, we can determine the community that has the greatest need and offers the highest revenue potential for a particular asset or service.
