Analytics and the future of health care

Source: INFORMS

From the article:

Healthcare will be a hot topic during the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Barack Obama nearly two years ago is attacked or defended by the respective candidates and their surrogates. However, no matter who wins the White House this year, the U.S. healthcare system will be reformed, and more likely transformed, in the near future, and analytics is certain to play a leading role in that transformation. In fact, reform is already well underway, driven by increased competition within the healthcare industry, the trend toward "accountable care" and the realization that spiraling costs make the current system unsustainable.

[This article appears in the January/February 2012 issue of Analytics Magazine, a special issue focusing on healthcare.]
