Navigating Health Care Trends

Health care is a $3 trillion industry in the U.S., three times larger than the banking sector. Like many industries, it is experiencing rapid innovation and disruptive change. But unlike other industries, the health sector is intricate, dynamic, and far-reaching—a global network of business, government, and non-profit entities that impacts people and economies like no other.

How is the industry changing?

Business models are adapting to accommodate influences including the Affordable Care Act, public and private exchanges, the expansion of high-deductible health plans, and new technologies. These changes present the industry with incredible opportunities to improve the experience of care, reduce health care costs, and better the health of patients.
