Examining the path to recovery for hospital volumes and revenues
As states loosen and lift their "shelter in place" orders and restrictions on hospital elective procedures, hospital volumes will begin to return. The question is: What will the recovery look like? Ensemble Partners and SSI Group have joined forces to examine the available data; by combining hospital volume and revenue data with procedure rescheduling data from over 1,200 hospitals, we are gaining insights on what the recovery will look like. We will look at which states are showing early upward trends, which procedures are returning and how quickly, and how you can leverage these trends to accelerate recovery back to "normal."
