Healthcare + Technology

In the midst of recession worries, employment has been growing. In California, health care and social services employment has added more jobs than any other sector except for logistics over the last two years and more than any other sector in the 4th quarter of 2022. Technology is changing the way in which health care is delivered, the employment requirements and the impact that will have on future growth. The March UCLA Anderson Forecast conference will roll out the latest economic outlook and the probability of a near term recession and the implications of technology and the new business of health care.
