The world’s population is aging quickly thus increasing the associated cost of social security while simultaneously limiting the pool of available taxpayers to fund such programs. For example,in some parts of Europe and Japan, the average
age is over 44-years-old with over 33% of the population being more than 60-years-old. Despite the acknowledgement that something needs to be done to alleviate the problem, considerable effort has been expended to take the path of least resistance and thus maintain the status quo. While it is considered too expensive and daunting to explore alternatives, the need to nd a new approach to healthcare is imperative because the existing tactic is unsustainable.
American healthcare is a prime example of a dysfunctional system.
Approximately 10% of its population is currently uninsured following the implementation of President Obama’s hopeful Affordable Care Act and the future of healthcare in the country remains unknown under a Trump presidency. While the U.S. has an inordinate amount of resources, without taking into consideration the necessary technological requirements, universal healthcare will be an impossible endeavor.
And yet, countries still developing their healthcare systems have an even greater uphill battle. While there are some pockets of success like in Seguro Popular, Mexico where 55 million previously uninsured have been provided with insurance for the past 15 years, healthcare remains a global problem and a new approach is critical. A huge opportunity is open.

Existing healthcare models are based on antiquated paradigms. The truth is, European social security programs (being the most advanced) were established following World War II when the population was almost one-third of what it is now.The current demographic shift towards an aging population
and more patients suffering from chronic diseases is straining healthcare systems resulting in a major global challenge. How can healthcare providers sustain universal, high-quality healthcare initiatives for this deluge of patients while endeavoring nancial hardship and human resource constraints?
