Week 9: Strategic Planning and Marketing and Health Care ConsumerismMarketing and consumerism are important parts of the health care strategic planning process. Organizations must strategically market themselves to connect with potential consumers and increase their market share. Todayâ€™s health care consumers want access to quality, patient-centered care; to remain competitive, organizations have to position themselves to be leaders in providing this care. To this end, the MD Anderson Cancer Center, for example, launched the â€œMaking Cancer Historyâ€ campaign, which effectively positioned them in their local market as a leading cancer treatment center.This week, as you explore Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), you examine how they market their services and initiatives to increase health care consumerism.Assignment 1: Accountable Care OrganizationsAccountable Care Organizations (ACOs) play a key role in coordinating health care services for Medicare beneficiaries.
