Even with the recent surge in telehealth, hospital at home, virtual care and digital care, brick and mortar facilities will remain the nexus of care for the foreseeable future. In most disciplines, technology still has a long way to go to replace the benefits derived from eye-to-eye and physical examinations. Large-scale diagnostic and imaging equipment and therapies and procedures that must be conducted in person have a heavy anchor on physical facilities.

However, some brick and mortar may see a decrease in square footage when it comes to the degree of medicine that is conversation-based offered by a certain practice. Some may give up a portion of leased real estate or tailor it to the needs of telehealth.

Brick and Mortar was a healthcare industry trend in our 2022 March Healthcare Classic. Explore this year’s interactive bracket to see the most impactful healthcare trends face off.
