U.S spends more on health care than any other. This has outpaced inflation and overall economic growth. From spending approximately 256 billion U.S.D in 1980 on health care to a drastic increase to 2.6 trillion U.S.D in 2010.
Technologyreview.com has created an infographic namely the “Health Care Costs and the Role of Technology”, which gives the detailed view of all the different technologies used by the hospitals in U.S and their importance for the citizens. Also the expensive technologies which the hospitals spends on. Clearly a learning example for all the other countries, because as we all know “HEALTH IS WEALTH”.
