The United States health care system historically focuses on finding treatments and cures for health conditions instead of addressing the factors and behaviors that cause them. With health care spending in the United States growing at one of the fastest rates it is crucial there is a shift from treatment and cures to prevention. One in two adults has been diagnosed with at least one chronic condition. The growing incidence of chronic diseases results in higher costs throughout the health care system — making it more challenging than ever to help people become healthier.
