Rising healthcare costs. Increased mobility of patients and clinicians. An aging population. Staffing shortages. While the United States faces many unique healthcare challenges, we can learn from other countries successes in facing similar problems. As borders have blurred, the opportunities to benefit from innovations from other countries have increased, and health systems are looking to each other more and more for solutions.

This book draws on reliable, agenda-free sources to predict the impact of emerging global trends on the US healthcare system. It provides timely advice on how to proactively engage in and capitalize on globalization rather than react to it.

Discover what these trends could mean for your organization:

  • Digital health information
  • Patients traveling for value
  • Global cost competition
  • Rising healthcare costs
  • Establishing uniformity among practices and standards
  • Negotiating on value
  • Balancing primary and specialty care
  • Growing mobility of health professionals

The book concludes with a case study that illustrates how to incorporate global trends into your strategic planning process.
