As medical science continues to discover new ways to fight illnesses that have baffled the medical community for years, people are now living longer. Aided by dramatic advancements in technology, many life-threatening diseases have been eliminated around the world. Yet, if we ask a cross-section of medical experts - patients, doctors, insurers, government officials or hospital administrators -- about the state of our healthcare systems, they will agree that it needs improvement. The problems are well documented: Rising costs, mismanagement, incompatible systems, limited access, and the lengthy development cycle for new medicines. How can we change the way healthcare is provided so that we dramatically cut costs for medical care and improve outcomes for patients? It's clear that future healthcare systems need to be more efficient, more connected, and more patient-focused.
