Need to curtail escalating healthcare costs;

The overall cost of healthcare delivery has grown significantly over the past few decades. Factors such as increasing health insurance premiums, the growing demand for quality healthcare services, the rising number of elderly people, and the growing incidence of chronic disorders drive the demand for healthcare services across the globe.

- Currently, the US is facing major challenges in countering the rising healthcare costs. Healthcare accounted for ~17.7% of the US GDP in 2019; this figure is estimated to reach 26.0% by 2035 (the highest across the globe).

- Additionally, according to the CMS and National Health Statistics Group, in 2019, the per capita healthcare expenditure in the US was USD 11,582. According to OECD projections, public expenditure on health and long-term care in OECD countries is set to increase from around 6% of the GDP currently to almost 9% of the GDP by 2030, and as much as 14% by 2060.
