Service Line Strategy


An aging population and longer life expectancies are driving demand for neuroscience services, while advances in technology are allowing for expanding patient eligibility.


Over the next 10 years, neuroscience services are projected to grow more than almost any other medical and surgical services. This growth will create opportunity for investment in programs that can generate increased volumes and revenue at a time when traditional hospital-based programs are migrating to the ambulatory and outpatient settings. However, neuroscience service lines are among the most complex to define and manage, in part due to the array of varying clinical conditions, many with unique and distinct patient, physician, programmatic, and planning implications.

Building successful neuroscience programs requires health systems to thoughtfully organize their services around more coordinated, contemporary, and financially sustainable clinical programs. Successful neuroscience service line leaders must develop programs with an eye to the future—anticipating change and championing progressive approaches to care, developing destination programs for neurovascular/stroke, spine, and degenerative/cognitive conditions, and enhancing ambulatory networks and access points that help insulate against future migration. Programs that take a disciplined approach to prioritizing and integrating subspecialty care options, pursue a performance improvement agenda, and elevate the patient experience and access to care will be the market leaders.
