“The U.S. healthcare system is at a crossroads. In one direction, we have the Mack truck of chronic disease barreling toward us. By 2020, about 157 million Americans — nearly half of the U.S. population — will be managing a chronic disease, with 81 million people managing more than one. These conditions are incredibly costly, representing 75 percent of the nation’s $3.3 trillion annual healthcare costs… To make matters worse, by 2032, the United States could see a shortage between 46,900 and 121,900 physicians.”
