Healthcare 2030: Four Economic Scenarios

February 21, 2019

Looking back on how the industry has progressed over the last two decades, US healthcare now comprises 18 percent of total gross domestic product, up 13 percent from twenty years ago. The composition of that spending has remained (remarkably) stable since 1960, with 38 percent to hospitals, 23 percent to physician services, and 12 percent to prescription drugs. Pharma accounts for less than one-sixth of total healthcare spend, while deriving almost half of healthcare ecosystem profits.
