Introduction 

A demand surge in an environment of fiscal constraint and slower product innovation will create a climate that favors investment in new ways of delivering care, in part by applying the power of information technology—long overdue in healthcare, relative to other sectors. Indeed, the shift in emphasis from managing inputs, like the rate of adoption of new products and the number of physician visits, toward delivering outputs, like patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes and overall system savings, is already well underway.

Going forward, the critical question for companies will be how they can evolve their business model and thrive in a world of shifting profit pools by focusing on delivering better outputs, rather than by simply generating more inputs—more products, more procedures and ultimately more cost to the payers.

This course is best suited for health care professionals, hospital administrators, managers, supervisors, Medical Practitioners, Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics and Support Staffs at Hospitals, Clinics and Pharmacies to acquire principles for effective Healthcare Management which is essential to the leading hospitals and healthcare companies. The course has a distinct appeal due to the growing demand for trained professionals and administrators in this growing Healthcare industry.

  • Understand the healthcare organisations structure and culture, including the organisational behavior in healthcare industry.
