Managing the medical facility requires a lot of skill, error-free movement in the maze of provisions of law and organisational activities, thanks to which it will function smoothly.
In the highly competitive market of medical services, only well-thought through investments in both infrastructure of the facility and staff can provide higher profits and increase the number of patients.
In the era of rapid advances in medicine and introduced advanced technology, various possibilities of proper and professional use of knowledge in the scope of managing the medical facility, cause that managing health services requires appropriate managerial skills. The mere knowledge of management is not enough to achieve a competitive advantage, although it is still the key to success.
The current activities of managers should be primarily aimed at the fast, rational, but also the appropriate action – making optimal decisions and competent handling of patients at the highest possible level.
The period of using new potentials, ideas and solutions that will help streamline, e.g. the administrative system, has begun, thanks to which it will be possible to use the funds owned more skilfully, which is the main headache for the management of the health care system today.
The most frequently identified areas for improvement through the eyes of the manager of the medical facility:
- A small number of patients at the facility
- A small number of diagnostic tests carried out
- A small number of planned surgeries carried out
- Busy and querulous staff
- Impaired smoothness of medical services provided
- Prolonged duration of visits of individual patients
