Much of the healthcare in America is actually delivered outside the four hospital walls- through our clinics, surgery centers, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospice and palliative care services, rehabilitation centers, behavioral health facilities, and medical practices.
With the recent acceptance of telemedicine, the venues in which non-acute care can be provided are expanding even further to include any place where there is a good Internet connection.
In this issue of the Healthcare Workforce Advisor, we take a close look at non-acute healthcare. It is a sector that is rapidly reinventing itself through technology and better market positioning, but it is also a sector facing some tough workforce challenges.
