Why Does the U.S. Spend So Much on Healthcare? High, High Prices.

American healthcare spending is still WAY higher than pretty much all other industrialized countries. But not that long ago, things were different. The US didn’t spend nearly as much in this realm.

Information from these devices could be sent to doctors for patient monitoring. But this technology also creates challenges for doctors who might be treating hundreds of patients that now have access to this technology and are sending numerous amounts of data to their caregiver who does not have the technology to process, analyze, and provide meaningful information. To prevent data overload, physicians must reimagine the organization of healthcare.
