  • Published On : Jul 06, 2020

The office-based lab model can deliver primary care with the presence of a physician. This has increased the utilization of non-physicians to provide effective solutions at office-based labs. This factor has surged the number of non-physician graduates from 2013 to 2015, at a CARG of 10.6%. Simultaneously, the demand for non-physician clinicians has also increased at primary care facilities.  This is due to the fact that there are specific primary care that can be provided more comfortably by non-physicians rather than physicians.

According to a latest report published by PMR, the global office-based lab market was valued at US$ 19 Bn in 2020, and is expected to witness a healthy CAGR of around 13% during the forecast period (20202030).

Hospital Systems are Active in Primary Care

Hospitals in the U.S. focus on expanding their provider network to gain high referral volume by increasingly extending primary care. To reduce the cost of unnecessary or unavoidable surgical procedures, hospital systems are using stronger physician alignment. Besides this, multiple methods have been pursued by large hospital systems to offer primary care. This includes acquiring a practise group or collaborating with existing practises. The focus of hospital systems for expanding primary care will provide an absolute opportunity for the office-based lab market.
