The health care industry is the United States' largest enterprise, accounting for more than $1 trillion in sales of goods and services each year. It is also the nation's largest employer--one of every 9 U.S. employees works in the health care industry.[i] The industry continues to transform itself as it seeks to find the proper balance among cost, quality, and access to care. Areas of concern in health care that affect U.S. national security include the negative trends that lead to an increased incidence of disease, the growing number of uninsured residents, and consolidation within the industry that may limit the nation's ability to respond to mass casualty situations.
