Projections by the Census Bureau estimate the number of adults ages 65 and over could increase to more than 71 million in 2030 and hit 88.5 million by 2050. The market for treatment of obesity, COPD, obstructive sleep apnea, diabetes, and other chronic conditions continues to expand. This uniquely positions our industry to help improve the quality of life for more patients than ever before.

Industry Snapshots: Forecasting 2019 includes the following areas providers should have on their radar:

  • Competitive Bidding
  • Payer relations
  • Growth potential in the marketplace
  • Technology savings and solutions
  • Trends in telehealth
  • Ecommerce
  • The untapped potential of data
  • The power of organic growth and customer experience

If you felt uncomfortable in 2018, be prepared to take that to a whole new level in 2019.
