Description

Health care in the future will continue to be complex and involve private companies and the government. Decisions regarding medical necessity will need to be made regarding the type and intensity of care for different individuals. Insurance programs will limit care by denial of nonessential procedures, but they will make care available to the workforce and the uninsured. Demographics of patients, providers, and facilities will limit care for some individuals. Technology will continue to evolve rapidly, causing some current procedures to become unnecessary, and will allow for more efficient and cost-efficient care and cures that are unknown today.
