The facts are inescapable.
Brain and spine surgical procedures represent more than $13 billion in U.S. healthcare expenditures. As our population expands and ages, the incidence of neurological-related diseases and disorders will continue to grow, adding to an already overburdened health care delivery system. Under the restraints of declining revenues, payor reimbursements and advances in minimally invasive surgical procedures, hospitals,
physicians and facilities are starting to see the benefits of defining themselves by niche programs, or Centers of Excellence. Has your organization positioned itself for the future medical marketplace?
