Transaction tip: 4 factors hindering industry growth

What's behind the ASC market slowdown? Matt Searles with Merritt Healthcare shared several in a Becker's ASC Review report:

  • The market is maturing and saturating, making historical growth rates unsustainable.
  • Healthcare reform is introducing new rules and regulations with which some ASC can not comply.
  • Physicians are increasingly becoming hospital employed, reducing the pool of independent physicians available to work or develop new ASCs.
  • High-deductible plans are impacting utilization of ASCs through incentivizing consumers to put off elective procedures in tighter economic times.
