Economic Outlook:
– The USA has the largest economy in the world, according to GDP (€16,773.78 bn) and ranks 10th globally in terms of GDP per capita (GDPPC). It has the third most populated nation in the world, with 322.2 m inhabitants.
– With a steady growth rate projected for the coming years of around 2%, a desirable and sound inflation rate around 1-1.5%, and continual improvements in public debt, the economic outlook for the USA looks solid and positive.
– The recently elected Trump administration and its politics are widely controversial, yet many investors and businesses also appear to have confidence that they will provide new opportunities and benefits to the US economy.
– The debate and revision of the healthcare bill will take at least the remainder of 2017 and go well into 2018 before any changes can be passed by Congress, signed into law by President Trump, and rolled out to the general public.

The Healthcare System:
– US healthcare expenditure is 17% of GDP, equivalent to €2,731 bn in 2015. There are around 4,800 acute care hospitals, of which 22% are public, and 76% are private. Healthcare and healthcare insurance coverage is relatively decentralized according to state jurisdiction.
– Despite a comparatively high spending on HC compared to economic peers, HC outcomes are infamously poorer and many HC users suffer huge financial strains, constraints and even bankruptcy when needing care in the USA.
– Healthcare execution is decentralized to a relatively wide extent, granting organizational liberties in regards to physician licensing and insurance coverage programs, in the hands of state healthcare authorities. This relative flexibility granted to the states to organize their own public healthcare has created a varied healthcare infrastructure and landscape throughout the USA.

– House passes repeal and replacement of Obamacare bill (May 2017)
– FDA approval processes to be accelerated (2017-2018)
– Expected changes: Budget cuts
– Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (2015; starting date 2017)
– Medicaid Expansion (2014)

The Markets:
– The USA has one of the most technologically advanced healthcare medtech infrastructures, and pursues being a world leader in innovative technologies and techniques.
– In 2015, the entire medtech market, including capital equipment and disposables, was valued around €152 bn. Growth forecasts range from 2-3% for disposables, to 6% for capital equipment. It is one of the biggest markets worldwide, representing around 45% of global revenues.
– The pharmaceutical market is also one of the largest in the world, valued at €396 bn, with a projected growth rate of 1.3%.
– Procurement via GPOs is widely popular and there are over 600 GPOs in the USA, of various sizes, regional-coverages, and portfolios/specializations.
