What is Health Administration?

The health care sector is a complex environment of health care systems, not-for-profit and for-profit health organizations, medical practices and urban, suburban and rural settings providing a range of health care services to inpatients and outpatients. There are many factors that contribute to an organization’s ongoing success. Health care administrators, leaders, directors and managers are responsible for the day-to-day operations providing executive leadership and oversight in policies and procedures, strategic vision and direction, finance and costs and quality of care. Health administration requires a range of knowledge, skills and competencies essential for the provision of effective health care.
