Executive summary

The U.S. health care industry is experiencing a period of profound change. A new Republican-led government is in place with a popular mandate to ‘repeal and replace’ many of the reforms that have transformed the industry in recent years, and health care leaders will need to adjust strategies to the wave of new polices and regulations emanating from Washington.

At a more grass roots, operational level, however, new payment and delivery models are fundamentally reshaping how the industry conducts its business. Traditional boundaries between health care and life sciences businesses and professions are being dismantled.

Meanwhile, new science and technology-from drones to the microbiome and robotics-are expanding the realm of opportunities for the industry. How will the future unfold?
