    but in the US, things are going to be interesting. Our population is "aging", getting older, and as we do that, we have more demand for healthcare. Recent legislation has spurred development of technology in healthcare as well. The big problem will be balancing this increase in "demand" with the ability to pay for services. Newer treatments are almost always more expensive than older modalities, new test procedures cost more than older tests, and most everyone wants the "best" healthcare available. Some estimates say the US will be spending close to 30 percent of its GDP on healthcare within the next 10 years, or less! It is going to be interesting, to say the least.

    If you mean healthcare IT, there will be a lot of work to do. The current state of software is still in it's infancy, and usage is not what it should be. There will be needs in developing new software, new interfaces, and once all the patient data is collected, how to store it, how to use it, how to make sense of it - all grouped under the banner of "Big Data".
