New Resource Directory Provides Market Research/Contact Data on Integration of Healthcare Delivery Systems
Manasquan, N.J. — Hospitals and health systems have begun undertaking a metamorphosis to meet the nation's movement into managed healthcare by forming integrated healthcare delivery systems (IHDSs).# # #
While payors began offering managed care products such as HMOs and PPOs en masse during the 1970s and 1980s, healthcare providers seriously started taking steps toward managing healthcare in the 1980s. This move toward integration spiked during the mid-1990s, according to research finding from a market study conducted for the second edition of The National Directory of Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems.
Hospitals and medical centers began forming IHDSs in the late 1970s, and continued forming at a steady pace throughout the 1980s. Then the formation of delivery systems began to accelerate during the mid-1990s as healthcare providers began to realize they must join forces either
through merger, acquisition and/or alliances to remain competitive in the marketplace and to have better leverage when negotiating with managed care organizations.
The Directory, produced by The Managed Care Information Center, can help professionals interested in researching and/or contacting this dynamic market. The National Directory of Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems, Second Edition, offers detailed profiles on more than 850 IHDSs, including main address; mailing address; phone, fax and Web address; 5,200 executive contacts; system statistics, i.e., revenue figures, year established, physician data, admissions, and number of beds; and listings of more than 12,000 system affiliations coded by service provided.
And, The National Directory of Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems, Second Edition, includes a special executive report that focuses on trends in the industry and offers market forecasts of where IHDS growth is expected in the next few years.
