Importance of Interconnected Ambulatory Networks | GHS Portfolio Strategy Whitepaper

Article commentary by: Eric Murphy, Global Healthcare Services

At the 2018 BOMA International’s MOB/Healthcare Real Estate Conference last month in Houston, TX, Ethan Brosowsky of The Advisory Board provided a comprehensive presentation on the opportunities and challenges health systems are facing when making decisions for their ambulatory networks. The shift from inpatient care to outpatient care is well underway and health systems need to develop a proactive strategy for outpatient care with involvement from key stakeholders of the system.

Brosowsky related the ambulatory network to a constellation of stars. The healthcare ecosystem is similar to a constellation as it needs to be interconnected and drive seamless integration through the health systems footprint in order for patients to receive the right care at the right cost in the optimal location.

Brosowsky outlined the opportunities and challenges for the 5 different types of ambulatory facilities health systems might be considering: Medical Office Buildings, Urgent Care Centers, Free Standing Emergency Departments, Micro-Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgery Centers.
