  • State and federal-level health care policy reform
  • Fiscal challenges
  • Population health management
  • Fundamental shifts in the capital markets and reimbursement systems
  • Disruptive innovation and technology

  • Clinical advancements in genomics and personalized medicine
  • Consumerism
