Quality Healthcare

Poor health places a tremendous economic burden on our citizens through increased healthcare costs and lack of a healthy workforce to support our businesses. To grow our competitive advantage, North Carolina must consider the policies and practices needed to create and scale disruptive innovations that improve prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
