Science and technology in medicine: Health Care Trends
For over five decades, the U.S. has led the world in all aspects of research and development (R and D); however, escalating health care costs, an aging population, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases are factors that will continue to shape the directions of science and technology in medicine. Science and technology in medicine: Health care trends addresses the most important scientific and technological trends affecting patients, physicians and policymakers today and those that are expected to have a significant impact in the future. This report by the AMA’s Council on Long Range Planning and Development analyzes data on medical research funding, new medical advances, health information technology, communication technologies, telemedicine, and data analytics to formulate predicted impacts of these trends for patients, physicians, and policymakers.
