Today, health care is in the spotlight like never before. As conversations rise and fall in the public eye, it’s important to remember that the work toward more sustainable, accessible, affordable, high-quality care must continue. Health care modernization did not begin and must not end with recent reforms. To realize true transformational change, we need a constant stream of unbiased research, industry innovations and idea exploration.
