Type Insights of Hospital Services Market

Till recently, inpatient services, including hospitalization procedures that require patient stay, were considered as a primary revenue source for hospitals. However, in recent times, due to improved quality of wound healing equipment and quicker recovery from surgeries, patient stay duration has decreased significantly, resulting in the gradual decline of inpatient market. Furthermore, longer hospital stay is an additional cost for hospitals, as they reduce a hospitals capacity to admit new patients. Outpatient market, on the other hand, is expected to grow in the future as a result of development in communication technology, which paved way for growth of telemedicine and remote consultation procedures.

Community hospitals are observed to have the largest number of patient beds and cater to numerous service areas/medical conditions via their specialized departments. They are generally promoted by local philanthropist organizations, corporations, and crowdfunded communities. However, as per analysis of the hospital industry, private hospitals have been increasingly observed to expand their specialist capabilities and specifically cater to patients with critical care requirements, such as cancer & cardiovascular care. On the other hand, state-owned hospitals aim to primarily target patients needing acute care, including infection control and accident/trauma treatments. These hospitals are therefore expected to have a declining market share in the future, especially in developed parts of the world.
