Projections created by Blue Cottage combine industry expertise with customized market research to truly provide an all-encompassing report. By combing high-level inputs (national legislative factors, demographics, utilization, and industry trends) with detailed local market drivers (physician recruitment strategy, local legislation, employment, and insured population percentage), Blue Cottage project teams work with health system leadership to develop a baseline forecast and sensitivity test a range of these drivers. This approach enables a health system to see how macro regional/state and national trends meld with local markets, service lines, patient activity and specific patient disease cohorts.
