The health care industry is in a state of flux. New disruptions have altered the landscape, changed the status quo and provided fresh opportunities for companies around the world. The Economist’s second annual Health Care Forum will address innovation in care delivery and products, discuss the best business strategies for growth and explore investment prospects within the sector.

The health care industry is at a turning point around the world. Populations are aging, costs are rising alongside spending and governments are legislating new models. Health care companies are no longer simply defined as a doctor’s office, hospital or insurer, and the sector itself is becoming more globalized.

As technologies offer the promise of a solution, the pace of change in the health care industry has hit fast forward, and payers, providers and patients remain unclear about the impact of these changes for the future. How should health care professionals prepare for the future?
