As spending in the healthcare industry has gone up, some argue that all that money has not resulted in greater outcomes.
In an article from Tech Crunch, author Mike Townsend writes, “Healthcare in the U.S. has ballooned into a massive industry worth $3 trillion. The United States spends approximately $9,237 per person for healthcare, roughly three times more than most other first-world countries.

- Rethinking advance care planning
- Better post-acute rating referral system
- Real time logistics
Townsend continues, “Some of the biggest opportunities to improve the world exist in healthcare. The more smart people we entice to work on these problems, the better our world will be. Winning in healthcare can be building a billion-dollar company, while also tangibly improving and saving lives”. How is your company improving healthcare in America?
