As a Health Care Administrator (HCA), you will take an expanded leadership role in your health care organization and be responsible for ensuring that the operations of the organization run smoothly. You will work closely with health care professionals in providing patients with top quality health care. HCAs also often serve as communications liaisons between medical staffs and department heads and other administrators. In fact, most HCAs will have responsibilities that include management of other staff as well as overseeing staff scheduling, hiring, reviews, patient billing and record keeping, including financial outlooks for the organization. Not only will you have foundational knowledge and skills within the organization, but you’ll have enhanced interdisciplinary understanding and collaboration with affiliated organizations. You will apply principles of management needed to build and work in cross-functional teams and facilitate collaborative decision-making.
