Evolution of the US health care system has been punctuated by periods of rapid change. In the coming decades there will be meaningful and potentially disruptive developments in health care delivery mechanisms, the policy environment, and the populations for whom we provide care. Neurologists will need to adapt to changing patient expectations, market dynamics, and regulatory structures to thrive in the future health care environment. This article describes a forecast of potential changes in the US health care system by 2035, an assessment of the implications for the field of neurology, and a rationale for long-term strategic planning to prepare.
