Health care spending in the United States more than tripled between 1972 and 1982, increasing from $94 billion to $322 billion.
This growth substantially outpaced overall growth in the economy. National health expenditures are projected to reach approximately
$690 billion in 1990 and consume roughly 12 percent of the gross national product. Government spending for health care is
projected to reach $294 billion by 1990, with the Federal Government paying 72 percent. The Medicare prospective payment system
and increasing competition in the health services sector are providing incentives to integrate clinical practice patterns
with improved management practices.
