  • The spiraling cost of managing health care for the world’s aging population presents a major challenge to society.
  • The global demand for care delivery is increasing – which in turn places a significant burden on under-resourced health care systems, governments and health care providers around the world.
  • We continued to implement Accelerate! across our global Healthcare business to provide the industry with the most innovative solutions to address these needs.
