Many healthcare organizations, in pursuit of economies of scale and scope, have acquired a collection of overlapping units that have failed to achieve the intended goal of system integration and transformation. Economies of scale are factors that cause the average cost of producing something to fall as the volume of its output increases and have been one of the main drivers in many mergers and acquisitions in healthcare today. Economies of scale, however, can also create diseconomies of scale. The larger an organization becomes in pursuit of reaping economies of scale, the more complex it tends to become to manage and run such scale. This complexity incurs a cost, and eventually this cost may outweigh the savings gained from greater scale.
