A new study finds that the multitude of pressure academic medical centers (AMC) face in trying to meet their multi-faceted missions of teaching, research, and patient care, may be threatening their long-term viability of the AMC.

The study, performed by Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, says that the recession, health reform, and health cost containment are preventing AMCs to fulfill their mission. A press release says, “. . . 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.”

Visit Deloitte’s site to download the report, which features strategies and innovations some AMCs have taken to beat the pressure.
