Traditionally Hospitals were just about healthcare, but today it has expanded into a network that has to be administered and managed. Today any healthcare institution needs skilled medical consultants, state of art technology, patient care system, a service delivery model, etc. A medical consultant that was supposed to be responsible for maintaining quality and promptness of other aspects of an institution found themselves to be highly underqualified for the job. To fill this gap between the two aspects of healthcare there came into existence the job profile of Hospital Management. Hospital managers are responsible for combining their business expertise with an understanding of the healthcare system to increase efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare services and increase patient satisfaction.
