Infographic: Healthcare is huge!

This infographic shows how big the healthcare industry is in the United States. What is interesting to look at?

  • In 2011 the total healthcare spending was 2.7 trillion and it is expected to double in the next decade
  • The amount of spending on healthcare technologies is increasing
  • Technology is changing the way healthcare is provided and administered
  • Reducing operational/overhead costs, increasing staff productivity, increasing patient satisfaction and improving workflow efficiency are the top priorities

US Healthcare providers rank ‘continuing medical education’ as most appealing use of Telemedicine. It seems these providers need to have a look (again) at the real definition of Telemedicine! And they will find new opportunities to reduce costs, increase productivity, efficiency & patient satisfaction!
