2016 Market Survey | Physician Office
The 2016 HIDA Physician Office Market Survey looks at current service offerings, expansion plans, and future medical supply purchasing, as reported by HIDA’s exclusive research panel of physician office managers. The report also takes an in-depth look at purchasing within system-owned practices. A majority of practices anticipate increased costs and an aging population will drive medical supply budgets upward over the coming year.
Among the findings: 43% of physician offices plan on expansion during the next year. Offices are also embracing technology solutions to improve patient contact, and physicians are starting to utilize telemedicine to enhance patient care.
