We all know by now that health-care accounts for more than 17% of the United States GDP and that healthcare costs have grown at a rate substantially higher than inflation.  Technology both contributes to and attenuates this cost spiral.  Technology most certainly has contributed both to significantly improved healthcare outcomes and to an improved patient experience.  Telemedicine allows physicians to discharge patients more quickly and to monitor their medical status remotely.  Electronic Health Records (EHRs) allow instant access and portability of vital patient health information.  Mobile devices give healthcare providers unprecedented flexibility and access to information.  The collection and dissemination of large amounts of clinical data facilitates new avenues of research and significantly improved patient outcomes.  And, all of this can help in very real ways to reduce the growth in healthcare costs.  Today we'll discuss some of these innovations and what they portend for the future delivery of healthcare.
