Default Re: Hospital Administration Vs Health Care Administration

The basic general difference between healthcare administration and healthcare management is that management runs the healthcare organization and administration handles the staffing. But inside these two general areas are several sub-areas of concern that require years of intense education and experience to get right.

The difference between administration and management is very much like the difference between sales and marketing. Both sales and marketing are used to generate returns for a company, but they accomplish that task in two different ways. Sales is the facade of a company that has the face to face contact with clients and marketing attempts to get bigger the corporate client base through advertising and other physical means. Marketing is also much more involved in demographics than sales would be, where sales would be much more concerned in revenue numbers than marketing.

Healthcare administration gets confusing because the people who run larger healthcare conveniences are often referred to as administrators. These kinds of confusions make it tremendously important that a professional understands the differences between management and administration before attainment too deeply into their career. One may find that they have chosen the wrong side or may have to restart their career to get it right.

Careers in Healthcare Management, depending on education and experience, may comprise executive positions in the following settings:

o Hospitals
o Mental Health Organizations
o Rehabilitation Centers
o Universities and Research Institutions
o Health Insurance Organizations
o Nursing Homes

Careers in healthcare administration may comprise:
o Home Healthcare/Operations Management
o VP of Healthcare Management Services
o Community Relations Manager
o Director of Healthcare Services

Healthcare management and healthcare administration careers both necessitate the ability and commitment to put patients and their families first while still meeting the complicated system and financial demands of the nation’s complex healthcare system. Often called “the most regulated business” healthcare requires well-trained and effective professionals who are prepared to work toward creating environments that support staff, increase patient satisfaction and move the healthcare facility into a cost-effective direction
