Healthcare Staffing Growth in 2016
Posted on Nov 17, 2016
In 2016, the expected growth in healthcare staffing revenue can largely be attributed to an increase in the number of newly insured due to the Affordable Care Act, which has increased demand for healthcare services while simultaneously decreasing hospital bad debt expense (as more insured means less uninsured admissions).
The US Congressional Budget Office projects an additional six million non-elderly Americans will gain access to insurance in 2016 as a result of ACA, which should help make next year another strong one for healthcare staffing.
