If you think about it, a majority of your heals have cast or channel times. In fact, the only ones that are instant are your self heal, your bubble, and your very small HoT, which has a moderate cooldown as well.

Your main source of heals, such as Innervate, Dark Infusion, Dark Heal (when Dark Infusion is not feasible), and, if you want, Revivification involve cast or channel times. It's because of these cast times that you telegraph yourself significantly and you are more easily shut down either through interrupts or just from enemies hitting you enough times. Compared to Mercenaries and Operatives which have more and better instant-cast heals, having pushback reduction at least gives you a fighting chance to cast your heals.
