The Drive for Transformation in Hospital Sector 

The 39th World Hospital Congress (IHF 2015) brings together Healthcare professionals from around the world, including key decision makers, investors and market leading health professionals, Hospital owners and Healthcare providers.

Healthcare is the largest, fastest growing, and most complex industry in the world. The U.S. healthcare system accounts for more than $2.5 trillion in annual expenditures, which is nearly 20% of our nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). According to economists in the Office of the Actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), spending is projected to grow at an annual average rate of 5.8% through 2020, which is 1.1% higher than our nation’s projected GDP growth. By 2020, healthcare spending is projected to exceed $4.5 trillion. The rest of the OECD and most emerging economies face similar challenges

Despite its size and growth trajectory, the healthcare industry is plagued with large-scale problems and inefficiencies that are prompting a massive transformation in how care is accessed, delivered, and reimbursed. The fundamental challenges confronting healthcare have created opportunities for companies with innovative technology and services that address the most costly problems.

The International Hospital Federation is committed to helping address these challenges throughout the hospitals sector in its member countries.

Objective of the Chicago 2015 Health Venture Fair

The objective of the Chicago 2015 Health Venture Fair is to showcase new and innovative technologies that will transform the way hospital care is delivered in the 21st Century.
