On Friday, March 23, Carnegie Mellon University will present the Innovation in Health Care Technology conference, an event that will explore the role of innovation to achieve an improved health care system.
Increasing health care costs and demand for health care services resulting from an aging and ailing population has made health care unaffordable and has undermined US businesses’ competitiveness in the global economy. Recently enacted health reforms aim to increase access to health care, decrease costs, and improve the quality of care. Innovation in health care technology—ranging from the implementation and use of HIT to the development of new medical devices—will change business models, improve efficiencies, and prove critical to the advancement of low cost, high quality health care.
