Normally, when supply expands, prices fall. But in the health care industry, as the number and variety of drugs, devices, and treatments multiplies, demand rises to absorb the excess, and prices climb. Meanwhile, the perverse incentives of a fee-for-service system reward health care providers for doing more, not s: The health-care system today is very different from what it was fifty years ago, and it is also different from the healthcare systems in other nations.

Companies like IBM, Microsoft and Google have introduced technologies that mine volumes of historic medical data in order to help diagnose diseases and make treatment recommendations.
