The United States Army Medical Department: 2039

In the mid- and late-1990s the Military Healthcare System (MHS) undertook an introspective look at healthcare and where it would be 25 years later. That project started out being called MHS-2020 and grew into MHS-2025.

Dr. (then Rear Admiral) Bill Rowley was a key leader in that effort.  He and his team at the Institute for Alternative Futures have developed 14 forecasts describing what healthcare might look like in 2039. These particular forecasts were written for a MEDCOM effort to look into the future so we might better plan for it.
