Increased Competition Brings Benefits to Healthcare
With hospital mergers on the rise and more and more private practices seeking buyouts, the healthcare landscape looks a bit rough right now, and increased competition might seem like the last thing you or the healthcare industry needs; but it turns out, a bit of competition could be just what the doctor ordered.
In healthcare, like in almost every other industry, competition becomes a driving force for things that improve the overall quality of products or services, while driving down the prices through the creation of innovations, creativity and flexibility. In this post, we’ll highlight some of the benefits that competition can create within the healthcare industry, and in following posts, we’ll take a look at each of these benefits more closely.
Benefits Driven by Competition:
- Increased Quality of Care
- Decreased Cost of Care
- Better Customer Relationships and Increased Customer Loyalty (with increased choice in healthcare providers)
- Access to Data
- Increased Patient Involvement (driven by positive relationship with their provider, the cost and quality of care received – patients will more readily seek treatment/checkups etc.)
