Healthcare Overview Over the last 5 years the healthcare system has begun to transform. This transformation includes a focus change to preventative care to the new health conscious consumers and the reduction of healthcare costs (PR Newswire, 2013).

This has created a need for hospitals to enter in partnerships to create hospital systems such as Centura Health.
Over the last 5-10 years the healthcare system has begun reformation to increase safety, efficiency, cost reduction, increasing continuum of care, and increases in information technology (IT). There are many influences that are creating this need for change including laws, regulations, and the consumers of the healthcare system. The consumer is beginning to take charge of their health and become an advocate of their healthcare needs and plans of action. This transformation has created a greater need for the healthcare system to increase the use of health management information system (HMIS). HMIS is meant to help all departments within a healthcare organization, such as a hospital, to communicate easier creating a better care experience for both the care providers and consumers.

Patient-centric care practices are becoming the foundation of the current healthcare system. However, there is work and research to be done before a fully integrated and patient-centric system is in place throughout the healthcare system. Murphy (2011) has taken a closer look at the patient-centric care system, and what must be done before the patient truly becomes the center of the healthcare universe. Patient-centric care makes the patient and their family members a significant part of the care team, which may help to remove unneeded and unwanted services (Murphy, 2011). Murphy (2011) determines four areas within the healthcare system that can be improved to increase patient involvement in their care: eHealth, primary care, hospital care, and health information exchange.
“This process begins with the strategic direction for the organization and integrates facility planning with market demand and service line planning, operations improvement initiatives, and anticipated investments in new technology” (Hayward, 2006, Chapter 1).

In this article the authors explain how health care reform is evolving through a three-step system; insurance (affordable are act), payment (accountable care organization), and physician reform.

Consequently, healthcare marketing, as an essential component of healthcare organizations, must purposefully follow the same rules. This paper will summarize the article “Advertising gone Too Far” and evaluate the effects of the ethics of healthcare marketing on both consumerism and the healthcare organizations themselves. It will also analyze the effects of the regulations and overseeing organizations on the delivery of healthcare with a proposal as to how to ensure compliance. Advertising Gone Too Far This article highlights the remarkable changes in healthcare marketing over the last few decades; from being a passive secondary measure to becoming an essential active component of any healthcare organization.

The hospital and physician practices in prior decades are not the same today and it’s vital to uphold standards for patient safety, care, and medical costs. As (Medicaid.gov, 2015) states, by contracting with various MCO’s to deliver Medicaid program health care services to their beneficiaries, states can reduce Medicaid program costs and better manage utilization of health services. Most states are implementing and coordinating more traditional services for managed care. Medicaid will to rise and aiding people who live in poverty, but the amount of challenges that lie ahead are problematic. For instance, the types of services including long-term care, mental illness, and eligibility standards are not permissible for everyone.
Mostly ADEs event occurs in high rating, which results in patient admission in hospital for long time. By implementation of CPOE in hospital, reduce the ADEs, save patient days in hospital not admission and save money. Birkmeyer et al., 2000 assumes that there are 7.6% patient medication errors per thousand patient-days and that CPOE could reduce the incidence of such errors by 55 percent. To prevent the ADE affection save the number of patient days in hospital and save diagnostic cost up to $4685 (Bates et al., 1997). From NHE record file in 2002, shows that the money spends on healthcare were $486 billion and saving from CPOE are $1 billion.
