    Healthcare has reached a tipping point

    • Healthcare industry in the U.S. has traditionally led innovation and exported globally

    • Enormous pressure on government to reduce costs – current model is unsustainable given “demographic” shifts

    • Administrators looking to improve quality, lower cost, and reduce variation in care … patients want quality and coverage

    • Many new healthcare models emerging on a global basis

    New solutions are required
