On top of that, just over 85 million Americans carry out their daily lives with some form of cardiovascular disease or after-effects of a stroke. However, because today's technology is quickly growing as innovative as it is aggressive, health care workers are able to work towards ensuring their patients don't become another statistic. Clarence Salow, 84, of Earlville, Iowa happens to be one of those patients who only recently avoided becoming a statistic this past February. Read more...

Innovation: Its Role in the Future of Health Care

Science is constantly changing, as is the health care system. Not only is it the responsibility of health care professionals to roll with the wave of medical innovation; it's an opportunity. Changing science, physician-led care, and the continuous support of nursing staff allows hospitals and clinics to offer advanced medical care to our communities; treating patients in new ways that have potential to be safer, more efficient and accessible. Innovation in technology and science is just one of the many tools used for medical advancements - made possible when led by strong physician and nursing care. When physicians and medical staff have a deep understanding of community needs, openness to collaboration, and trust in strong underlying science, transformative medical breakthroughs will continue to power our hospitals and support our communities.
