Intel and Partners Come Together to Solve Healthcare

At the SOLVE: Healthcare event last week, Intel’s Navin Shenoy noted that healthcare in the United States is in crisis, making up a shockingly large 18 percent of U.S. GDP. The $3.3 trillion U.S. healthcare system is larger than the national education or defense budgets combined.
