Revisiting 2023 Healthcare Predictions
to Prepare for the Road Ahead

By: | Category: ERP

Labor shortages, increasing levels of chronic disease, and other stressors have long challenged healthcare organizations and practices. And with the extreme, ongoing demands of COVID-19, new billing models, and the potential of a recession added to the mix, the coming years promise to stretch healthcare providers to change more rapidly and completely than ever before. 

In late 2022, leading global market research company Forrester Research and healthcare accounting software provider Sage Intacct released their predictions for healthcare practices and organizations over the coming year.  

Retail health clinics will double their share of the primary care market, forecasts Forrester Research

Forrester Research predicted that hospital bankruptcies could spike—especially among rural hospitals—due to shifting economics. Its analyst noted that remote patient monitoring will become increasingly important, and retail health clinics will command an increasingly large share of the market. 

Meanwhile, healthcare financial software provider Sage Intacct anticipated greater consolidations and growth in the healthcare market as a whole, as increased expansion in home healthcare and even greater demand for behavioral health services supersedes that of past years.  

“The healthcare industry is undergoing an incredible shift in technology, accessibility, operations and culture.”

So now that we are several months into another year of rapid change, how are these predictions coming to pass? In the webinar, “The Year in Progress in Healthcare,” healthcare experts from Forrester Research and Sage Intacct—as well as experienced technology advisor Net at Work— revisited these important industry trends. The key takeaway was how technology, like healthcare ERP as part of a digital operations platform, can help healthcare organizations meet the challenges of both today and tomorrow.
