China and the United States of America, as well as many other countries, are reforming their healthcare systems. Both societies face daunting challenges to balance increasing access with payment reforms that reward quality and eliminate waste, fraud and abuse. Both countries have enormous opportunities through automation and information technology but share the challenges of bringing care to frontier regions, which is exacerbated by maldistribution of health workers. As sales growth for innovative healthcare suppliers has slowed in the United States, they have looked to emerging markets, China being the largest and fastest growing.
