Demand for the Emergency and Other Outpatient Care Centers industry has grown steadily in recent years. Factors such as the aging population and the nondiscretionary nature of the industry's services have helped bolster revenue throughout the five years to 2014. At the same time, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has increased public healthcare coverage in the United States and established exchanges that have expanded the privately insured population, the industry's largest source of revenue. The industry will continue to expand over the next five years, though the changing insurance reimbursement landscape will encourage consolidation.
This industry includes establishments with medical staff primarily engaged in providing emergency, general or specialized outpatient care not included in other industries. Centers or clinics that include a variety of health practitioners, each with different specializations and operating in different industries, yet practice within the same establishment (e.g. doctor of medicine and doctor of dental medicine) are included in this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
