One of the more recent topics within the healthcare industry is telehealth and its potential disruption of the healthcare real estate environment. I wanted to share my perspective and insights on this trend based on a career history and experience working within and around telehealth.

For the past three decades, changes within the healthcare industry have happened very slowly and deliberately.

A recent article in Accounting Today highlighted the magnitude of balance sheet impact that the lease accounting changes (codified in ASC 842) are having on companies’ balance sheets.

A recent survey shows a growing trend of fear and concern amongst healthcare CFOs related to the cost of care versus the tightening revenue model for reimbursement of treatment. Organizations are being forced to recreate themselves and look for more progressive models to implement digital and ambulatory care while at the same time decreasing their cost of delivery models.

President Donald J. Trump’s administration is seeking to bring more price transparency into the healthcare market through a pair of new rules released by HHS on November 15.

The rules are in response to Trump’s June 24 executive order on improving price and quality transparency in the healthcare system.

Nearly all hospitals in the U.S. have set cost reduction targets and recognize their importance, yet fewer than one in four have achieved "most" or "all" of their cost transformation goals -- especially in non-traditional, high-opportunity cost reduction areas such as lowering unwarranted clinical variation.

That's according to a new survey from Kaufman Hall, its third annual in-depth look at the priorities healthcare executives are setting, and progress they're making toward improving organizational performance.
