The U.S. long-term care industry experienced strong growth from 1999 through 2004 and this growth is expected to continue through the end of the decade. Indeed, the aging of the U.S. population will push unprecedented demand for all forms of long-term care, but ongoing cost containment issues continue to pressure both private and public managed care organizations and make competition in this dynamic environment challenging.
This comprehensive study from Kalorama Information details four segments of the long-term care industry, including:
- Nursing Homes,
- Home Care,
- Hospices, and
- Assisted Living Facilities
For each of the segments, the report provides key data such as:
- Market size and growth for the historical years 1999-2004,
- Revenue forecasts through 2009,
- Market share of leading competitors,
- Demographics of the resident populations,
- Number and characteristics of facilities,
- Data on funding from the various payer sources,
- And much more
The report thoroughly examines the issues and trends affecting the long-term care marketplace, including regulatory and quality issues, insurance and managed care, and consumer attitudes and preferences. Extensive demographic information about the U.S. elderly population—information vital to strategic decisions about long-term care facilities and their future customers—includes racial/ethnic make-up, marital status, and detailed forecasts of age group populations in the United States through 2030.
Profiles of 10 top competitors includes information on their history and lines of business, recent financial situation, and corporate strategies for the future.
Historical information for this report was gathered from a wide variety of published sources including company reports and filings, government documents, legal filings, trade journals, newspapers and business press, analysts’ reports and other sources. Interviews with company representatives were conducted to capture the perspectives from industry participants’ point of view and assess trends, and form the basis of the forecasting and competitive analysis.
