Tag: health care management and health care administration are different how
At first glance, health care management and healthcare administration seem identical. Not synonymous in the least, managerial and administrative roles are inherently different. According to Mosby’s Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, and Health Professions, “management is the act, art, or manner of handling, controlling, directing over primary health care services in a medical group service,” while, “administration is the act of directing, administering following policies and principles in one executive activity,” that typically concern coverage policy, payment and the activities of government contractors. However, the main commonalities of these two roles are the comprehension of ethical and legal responsibilities in the medical field, medical terminology and HIPAA regulations.
