HIDA Releases New Resource Tracking Patient Volumes By Market Segment

October 2022 figures show rebounds in every segment

Volatility of demand for healthcare products has increased since the beginning of the pandemic, making it challenging for healthcare companies to understand which market segments are growing and how their results compare to the overall industry. To help its members better track demand trends, HIDA has created a new monthly resource with original, detailed analysis on recent activity in key market segments.

HIDA’s new Patient Volumes Chartbook shows patient volume in six key settings: ambulatory surgery centers, hospital outpatient, hospital inpatient, labs, physician offices, and skilled nursing facilities. Demand in all sectors declined during the pandemic – but most patient sites are rebounding. Patient volumes across all settings are up compared to October 2021, as the backlog of elective procedures, an increase demand for physician service, and a return to normal society have been positive contributors to U.S. provider markets. In October 2022, ASCs made the biggest gains, with patient volumes up 29% over October 2021 and 37% compared to October 2019.

The Patient Volumes Chartbook includes market-specific data including:
  • Patient volumes trended for the last 46 months, by site of care
  • Recent patient volumes (October 2022) within each market compared to both 2021 and pre-pandemic levels
  • Percent increase/decrease over last October’s volume levels

This new resource is available as a free member benefit.
