In the field of health care, one thing is for certain: innovation will continue to grow exponentially. “..Most of the innovations that healthcare leaders say they are excited about have less to do with medical advances and more to do with improving how health care is accessed, provided, and paid for in this country” (Phillips, 2015). Understanding how to support and move forward with this growth is essential for a health care manager.
