The U.S. Healthcare industry has an estimated revenue of over $1.6 trillion, of which 64% of it was generated by patient care. The industry has over 784,000 open firms and supports around 17 million jobs. In addition, the U.S. is the country that spends the most with health care, over $10,200 per capita. In addition, the industry accounts for close to 20% of overall gross domestic product (GDP).

Healthcare Industry Trends

Companies within the U.S. Healthcare industry prioritize medical technology, research, and innovation. Health care companies are now implementing payment models that help not only providers but also payers and patients achieve the best outcomes at the lowest cost. In addition, the industry is seeing a change in patient demographics and consumer expectations. Consumers are demanding transparency, convenience, access, and personalized products and services. Thus, companies are investing in technology, enabling increased financial independence for patients and improving interactions with their health care systems. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has being used to help streamline health care delivery and align it with changing consumer preferences while lowering the costs of operational and clinical inefficiencies by $100 billion per year

Franchises in the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry can be a secure investment opportunity as the demand is more of a need rather than a want in the U.S. population. Over 96% of the U.S. population over the age of 75 has a chronic disease, and needs additional support by healthcare providers. Senior Care Franchises Many seniors now prefer living at home rather than transitioning to a traditional nursing home, but will require extra care from home senior care. Businesses in the home senior care industry have grown over 4% per year since 2011.

Different types of businesses in the healthcare space include but are not limited to urgent care centers, hospice, and medical staffing. The healthcare industry will continue to grow as baby boomers enter the maturing age. Senior citizens are the fastest growing population segment in the U.S. The services provided can vary between specialized nursing care, medical staffing, living assistance, and more.

Healthcare Franchises: Urgent Care 

Urgent care services have also grown as it is more convenient for patients who cannot wait and need immediate care, especially as there has been a shortage of primary care physicians. There will also be an increasing demand for urgent care centers as more people will be insured due to healthcare reform. According to IBIS World, the total revenue for urgent care centers in 2019 was $28 billion.

Healthcare Franchises: Medical Staffing
