The Innovative Future of Healthcare

America is facing a chronic disease crisis. As a nation, we spend 86 percent of healthcare dollars on the treatment of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, and the incidence rates of many of these illnesses will increase rapidly in the coming years.

To address this rising societal and economic problem, proactive measures are absolutely necessary, encompassing both delivery reforms and innovative wellness initiatives.

HLC, by virtue of its diverse membership, brings an extraordinary level of expertise to this issue. HLC members have succeeded in improving the overall health – and reducing the healthcare costs – of their workforces and the broader community. These success stories can play an important role in guiding and shaping systemwide improvements in combatting chronic disease.
