ALTERNATIVE CARE MODELS
Alternatives to traditional patient care are evolving in response to the world’s aging population.
Gone are the days of diagnosis and treatment in a cold, sterile hospital setting. Across the United States, alternatives to hospital practices are seeing substantial growth.
Office-based labs (OBLs) are one such option.
Also known as office interventional suites, OBLs are being opened by vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists and other physicians who have an interest in a delivery-care model that is patient centered in an office-based setting.
