The State Of Healthcare Technology

Two companies are looking to make a major splash in the health care industry. A report recently claimed that CVS is looking into purchasing Aetna, which is a health care company. A second report stated that Amazon went through the process of obtaining medical licenses across multiple states. It was later revealed that these licenses were focused on equipment distribution, not prescription medications.

Today, the health care industry is worth $3 trillion. An estimated $9,237 per person is spent on healthcare by the United States. That’s about three times more than most of the other first-world countries. Despite shelling out more money, countries that spend less still match or outperform life expectancy in the United States.

There are organizations that look for ways to bring more efficiency to healthcare in the United States. Evergreen Healthcare Partners specializes in information technologies and services. The organization puts emphasis on the way they treat individuals. They hope to aid team members in their growth as they look to partner with other organizations.
