Healthcare Management Education

Managing patients' health care records and keeping them confidential may be the main duties of a healthcare manager. Government regulations require all patients' medical records to be kept secure. In this role, you may be tasked with learning computer software and technology and keeping this knowledge up-to-date as trends and regulations change. Some healthcare managers may also make business management decisions for day-to-day operations, oversee billing and collection practices, and review patient flow.

Healthcare Management Degree

Healthcare is a diverse industry that may offer opportunities in a host of areas, from nursing to administration. Healthcare managers may be responsible for providing the best experience for patients, while providing the best environment for staff.

1. Financial Stability

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the salary range for healthcare managers is from about $51,280 to $144,880, with a median salary of about $84,270.

You may also enjoy being part of a growing industry. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that between now and 2020, the number of healthcare jobs may increase by more than 22%. Healthcare management degree graduates may expect to have potential job opportunities for many years to come.

2. Industry-Specific Knowledge

The conventional business degree may be a good choice for generalists, but if you want to learn the in's and out's of the complex heathcare industry, you may want to invest your money and time in a targeted degree. The insider's knowledge you acquire may give you an advantage that you may not find in a general business program.
