Health care administration is a growing field that improves the structure, maintenance and supervision of hospitals and other health care facilities.
Health care administrators, such as facilities directors, human resource managers and medical records coordinators, are essential to the effective operation of any health institution. If you are interested in hospital finances, human resource management, assessment of quality patient care, health care litigation, budget management or public policy, this might be the right major for you.
Technology plays an increasingly important role for health care providers in improving the quality of patient care, making effective use of resources, and monitoring outcomes. The growing field of health informatics combines health care administration with information sciences. Health informatics professionals work with the equipment and methods necessary for the acquisition, storage, retrieval, and use of information in health and bio-medicine.
