A recent survey of 300 healthcare executives revealed some dominant trends within the healthcare industry for 2013. Key among them is the ever-narrowing margin for management error in an industry where every issue is now examined through the lens of financial performance. 

The survey, conducted my healthcare consultant firm B.E. Smith, identifies the trends that are “leading drivers for healthcare organizations in 2013.”

Here are just a few:

Increased uncertainty exists regarding the economic, policy and regulatory future. This uncertainty makes it difficult to plan and make long-term decisions.

Rapid changes in the industry, including a move toward using patient satisfaction as a basis for reimbursement. Which means many organizations will need to undergo a significant cultural shift. 

An evolving hospital workforce that is seeing CEO and new employee turnover at an all-time high.
