The chart below speaks for itself, with the US having the highest costs and among the lowest quality(37th in world rankings). The farther out a system is, the more opportunity there is and for semis and closely related semi/nano technology the opportunities not only in the technical/data base end, but adding desperately needed real time transparency to the business end. Comments, thoughts and additions solicited and welcome. The US is entering into a mess that may drive the US bankrupt with the latest problem with GE but one example of medical literally collapsing the US as a country. This example of fraud on a major scale is just an indicator of how far out of control accounting for medical has become for companies, state, local and federal governments has become. Check link below. The use of semi/nano technologies in automation, wearables, data bases, the business end and adding transparency to an industry that is deliberately opaque are diverse and large. Also note, Canadian health care ranks far higher in quality than US care.
