ADMINISTRATION IN HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT

In this era of digital technology, the healthcare industry is evolving at such an astonishing  pace that professionals who aspire to higher management can ill afford to stand still. Healthcare managers are required to address not only the expectations of patients’ but also of the patients' families and communities. They face a host of challenges including tackling issues around cost and cost containment, new treatment modalities and technologies, increasing popularity of digital applications, changing disease patterns, an aging population, health maintenance and health improvements.

The programme is specialised for private and public health and health-related organisations such as hospitals, clinics and health authorities; non-governmental organisations; insurance and managed-care organisations; pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical equipment and related health industries.
