The rapid pace of change in the healthcare industry is creating turbulence for just about all of us. In 2008, total national health expenditures were expected to rise 6.9 percent -- two times the rate of inflation. Total spending was $2.4 TRILLION in 2007, or $7900 per person. Total health care spending represented 17 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).

U.S. health care spending is expected to increase at similar levels for the next decade reaching $4.3 TRILLION in 2017, or 20 percent of GDP.

Healthcare is powered not only by large enterprise companies, but by thousands of small to medium size businesses.

The Healthcare Business Alliance represents the entire spectrum of our healthcare community - business consultants, real estate agents, pharmaceutical reps, accountants, biotech companies, payors, providers, hospital systems, information technologists, banking, healthcare finance companies, durable medical equipment, nurses, practice administrators, office managers, radiology facilities, and more.

Businesses both large and small will play a major role in the transformation and reform of healthcare. If you are a member of the healthcare business community or would like to explore what opportunities may exist for your business, join us.
