Ambulatory Drivers: Part One, ACCESS

Posted by Guest Contributor on Sep 16, 2015

Mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, strategic alignments. No matter how a health system goes about their expansion plans, easy patient access to their facilities is key.

A well-executed strategy, with an eye on brand recognition, highway visibility, public transit convenience and proximity to complementary services within the System play a large role in successfully rolling out any expansion plan. Several Array thought leaders have spoken on these topics recently, and we have compiled a video highlighting the important takeaways.

Take a few minutes to meet a few of our leaders who have accomplished successful, accessible ambulatory care centers for our healthcare clients. Regardless of the location – urban, suburban, rural – or facility size, from a specialty clinic to a multi-story MOB to a hospital-without-beds, the strategy implemented to expand into a new cachement area or increase presence in the current community needs to include resources to attract and retain patients. Those resources include easy access via highways and public transportation; a full complement of services such as primary and specialty care, imaging and diagnostics; and conveniences including dining, wifi and retail options.
