Healthcare is a huge industry and marketplace, but what’s its impact in the world?

Can new technology, which tracks disease and patients, also track health and motivate individuals to invest in it? Can pharma realize the beyond-the-pill vision of keeping people healthy with pills plus tech-mediated engagement? Will society tax sugar to pay the costs of diabetes care?
