Unique IT Market Assessment of the North American Healthcare Industry

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3131ce/healthcare_industr) has announced the addition of the "Healthcare Industry in North America - IT Market Assessment" report to their offering.

Healthcare expenditure in the US has risen rapidly since 2000 and continues to rise faster than the economy as a whole and workers' earnings. Healthcare expenditure in the US has been the highest in the past decade when compared to other countries and is expected to outpace the Gross Domestic Product growth over the next 10 years.

As increase in health insurance premium continues to outpace the growth in workers' wages, workers are spending a larger percentage of their wages on health insurance. Government is also pushing more of the costs onto citizens through higher statutory payments or higher direct contributions under the universal health coverage plan.
