Additionally, to help patients achieve positive outcomes, health systems are focusing on managing, coordinating, and delivering high-quality care services. The growing emphasis on improving patient outcomes will facilitate the development of post-acute care facilities.

Shifting preference toward in-home healthcare to augment post-acute care adoption

As compared to hospital settings, in-home healthcare services are also considered more cost-effective, further contributing to post-acute care consumption.
