Chronic diseases also have serious economic impacts on families, communities and societies in general. According to the New York Alliance Against Chronic Disease nearly half of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease which is often exacerbated by lifestyle choices such as smoking, overeating and lack of exercise. In Canada, chronic diseases are projected to account for 89% of all deaths and accounts for 55% of all direct and indirect health care costs.

Learn how Intelligent Communities can help to rein in rising healthcare costs while increasing access to healthcare among disadvantages populations and harness the power of Information & Communication Technologies to create new opportunities for economic growth and job creation.
