Health services managers typically:
- Work to improve efficiency and quality in delivering healthcare services
- Keep up to date on new laws and regulations so the facility complies with them
- Supervise assistant administrators in facilities that are large enough to need them
- Manage finances of the facility, such as patient fees and billing
- Create work schedules
- Represent the facility at investor meetings or on governing boards
- Keep and organize records of the facility’s services, such as the number of inpatient beds used
- Communicate with members of the medical staff and department heads.
In group medical practices, managers work closely with physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, and other healthcare employees.
