Health remains the most vital sector in all societies and anything that affects it means that the nation, in general, has a problem. In America, the issue is not any different. Over the recent years, health care has continuously shot up in the sense that if one compares its costs from way back in 1996 to present, the cost of health care is very high.
Some of the reasons that are found to be the cause include; continuous growth of population and aging, that is, more people are getting older, and this means that they need care and not just any attention but a special one. This means areas like homes for the aged have to be built and of course, this means finances. The high prices of healthcare are what leads to high spending by the patients when it comes to receiving care of any sort. The more common a disease is likely to affect people, the more its spending is escalated. For instance, numerous people have diabetes in various parts of the country, and a lot of money is spent on buying medicines. For back pain, neck pain, and others that affect so many are also costly. Although in this case, it’s not about drugs, and the care such patients are given like massage and other pain relieving procedures, which in turn becomes expensive.
Despite the high costs, all hope is not lost as organizations like Eric Lefkofsky foundation are of excellent health. Out of the need for health care, Eric Lefkofsky who is the president of the foundation merged his Startup, Tempus, with Northwestern University’ Cancer center. After that, the CEO hired Kevin White, who is the top researcher in genetics thereby his work comes in handy to cancer patients noting that cancer is one of the worst diseases ever. More so, the prices of genetic sequencing have reduced.
