What is Healthcare Management?

Healthcare management is the overall management of a healthcare facility, such as a clinic or hospital. Healthcare management professionals collaborate with medical staff leaders to help a facility or hospital department meet its goals, run more efficiently, and maintain a positive relationship with its patients and employees. A healthcare management professional’s duties may include: planning processes, preparing budgets, creating departmental goals and strategies to reach them, and working to improve the quality of healthcare services.
