Health Care Industry The health care industry is ever changing, fast growing and a necessity. Year after year there is always a new development in the field of health science. Changes like the Affordable Healthcare Act, and new treatment processes like the Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU). These new Systems and process where all designed to help make consumers happier. The past ten years healthcare transitions have paved the way for future changes in the industry. Just like any other business or provided service there are several question that are asked to determine whether the changes will significantly affect the cost of care. One question would be is the treatment taking the place of a current treatment? Are we expanding a current process by adding to the existing process? Changes in the Last Decade In the past American have struggled with health care system and have had to endure health care providers who fail to put the patient first. Millions of uninsured American struggled to pay doctors’ visits were as insured Americans were at risk of losing coverage when they really needed it. Thing like annual checkups and preventative screenings that could potentially save a person life was a luxury to most. It seemed that doctors’ focused more on the amount of care that they delivered instead of the quality of care provided. The affordable care act affords consumers the opportunity to control who provides their service and forces providers to provide a better quality of care, not at the expense of higher premiums.
