    A new report shows that Hispanics represent a large, mostly untapped market for health care companies. And while this demographic has largely been left behind in the U.S. health care system, that is about to change. I definitely think that Hispanics are paving the way when it comes to the use of technology, particularly social media. And why not? They’re on the go, living their lives on smartphones and using social media. They’re skipping the doctor more and more, relying instead on pharmacists for medical advice. And they want to save money.

    The U.S. healthcare landscape is undergoing a unique, transformative period. Many changes, soon to be or already implemented, are affecting the operations and philosophy of the industry. One area that has witnessed a lot of development is healthcare mergers and acquisitions. Based on what I have read, the deal value, the percentage of M&A deals rose 11 percent in 2011. Eighty-six hospital and health system transactions took place in 2011, up 12 percent from 2010.

    Being in the health care profession runs in my family however they are mainly doctors instead of nurses or things like that. I am looking at changing things up a bit because I am not a fan of the formal schooling and don’t want to be there as long as a doctor, I was thinking of becoming a nurse. I have read a lot of great blogs on the subject thank you.

    I would say that the increase of the population in the United States has a direct correlation with the increasingly aging population as well as the increase in the demand for healthcare. I don’t say this to sound any alarm about the overpopulation of the Earth, but rather to emphasize the increased demand for jobs in this field. It certainly is a good career field for those who want to be in the medical field, but don’t have the resources or desire to go to medical school.

    I liken the changing healthcare landscape to that of higher education. State spending for public colleges and universities dropped sharply last year, as the state-by-state numbers demonstrate. At the same time, tuition and required fee charges rose significantly in many states, and some states reduced their student financial aid programs. The result was the worst fiscal news for public higher education institutions and their students in at least a decade, as the economic recession struck almost every state.
