With global competition able to forever change other seemingly untouchable industries, will the same happen to U.S. health care? The article discusses Health City Cayman Islands (HCCI) founded by Dr. Devi Shetty who wanted to disrupt the U.S. Health System with his venture.  A great read, highlighting Shetty’s disruptive ideas for reverse engineering quality health outcomes at significant cost savings compared to U.S. health care spending.  Being close to home, yet outside U.S. regulatory boundaries, HCCI could represent a high quality, low cost health care option.
