Porters Five Forces focus on competitive forces that affect an organization. In many industries, including the healthcare industry, there are complementary products and services that add values to consumers. For example, the airline and hotel industries are complementary to each other and create values to travelers by transporting them and housing them during their vacations or business trips.
