Academic Medical Centers at a Tipping Point

Transformational change is needed to safeguard their future


Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) are at a tipping point: While driven to serve their tripartite mission of teaching, research and patient care, they are susceptible to myriad pressures that endanger their long-term viability.

A new report by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, "Academic Medical Centers: The Tipping Point," shares recent research about the pressures facing each element of Academic Medical Centers’ tripartite mission – pressures that are being compounded by the unprecedented effects of health cost containment, health reform and the recession.

The Deloitte report also offers a perspective on the opportunities, strategies and innovations that some AMCs have pursued and the questions that will drive their future sustainability.

We believe that academic medicine plays a key role in a reformed U.S. health care system, but transformational change is essential to safeguard its future. Failure to respond endangers the important health care sector that AMCs represent – one with a $451 billion economic impact and jobs for one of every 48 wage earners.

Methodology: This study is based on a review of relevant industry monographs and trends and features a strategic framework for evaluating the sustainability of an organization’s strategy.
