Information on Module Healthcare in the United States has changed due to the recent public policy changes and the growing number of Americans in the Medicare and Medicaid systems, but these are just recent aspects of a change that has been taking place for a long time. Healthcare is not just the emergency room and the responsive treatment of the consequences from life-threatening events. Before modern healthcare and the science of medicine, typical life expectancy was roughly 40 years (in 1841). The last 175 years, life expectancy has almost doubled and we are now dealing with chronic and other very complex healthcare issues that tend to not be as common in people aged 10 to 40. The bulk of healthcare costs tend to occur in the later years of life (with a not-insignificant bump at the beginning of life). When one compares healthcare costs over the life of its citizens, spending in the U.S. tends to be very different. This module explores the drivers and the game changes as well as strategies to improve quality and value and a more formal approach to managing the changes from the old ways of working to the new.
