Healthcare management is a sector that is concerned with the management and leadership of public and private healthcare organisations and businesses. The aim of healthcare management is to ensure that the processes within an organisation run smoothly and efficiently, taking into consideration both the requirements of the patient(s) as well as the business and financial ramifications involved.
