The Institute for Emerging Issues has had two goals for healthcare innovation for the past two years: to improve healthcare access, quality and cost and to maximize the industry’s economic development potential for North Carolina.

Defining new opportunities for our state to grow a skilled workforce, raising awareness about the economic impact of health, and highlighting the importance of engaging the next generation in this work have been critical to developing North Carolina’s competitive advantage in the healthcare industry. The work has centered on IEI engaging hundreds of stakeholders to attain these goals.

2. Economic Impact of Health

Everyone pays for the cost of poor health. As more people develop chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke, health insurance premiums continue to increase.

4. Economic Opportunities

Communities that work together have a greater chance of increasing economic development by collectively supporting policies and programs that improve health.
