Stocks in the sector have generally been beaten down as the debate rages on, but some should do well no matter what reform eventually looks like. These 5 are worth a look. By SmartMoney After months of histrionic headlines about socialized medicine and Congress' continuous plodding on health care legislation, it's not surprising that some investors have turned skittish on health care stocks.

The underlying processes and activities associated with delivery of health care are complex and interrelated – unlike most industrial work processes that are linear in nature with controllable variables, the healthcare processes are more web-like, with decisions and treatments customized to the patient’s unique considerations.

Value-Driven Health Care Home
Consumers deserve to know the quality and cost of their health care.
