Ambulatory Care 2.0: The Next Generation of Your Ambulatory Care Network


Health system growth will be driven by ambulatory care in upcoming years as value-based care models shift the focus from volume to value of care across populations.

  • Comprehensive and strategic (rather than opportunistic) ambulatory care planning
  • Network financial viability, given market dynamics and uncertainty
  • Service and location portfolio
  • Physician alignment and patient engagement
