The Healthcare Industry: What Is The Diagnosis?
The-healthcare-industry-FreyaThe Healthcare industry arguably has a greater influence on our daily lives than any other. From birth to death, everyone is affected by the quantity and quality of care that we can receive. The stakeholders are not only individuals and societies but businesses, which depend on healthy employees and customers. Understanding how our healthcare systems are structured, funded and staffed is the first step towards creating healthier and so more productive societies. Furthermore, with a total revenue of almost US$2 trillion the influence of healthcare on the global economy should not be underestimated.
