Prepare to Advance Your Career
Access, quality and cost are critical issues in health care that affect all individuals and communities. The health care industry continues to experience complex and fast-moving developments in technology, economics, ethics, finance, policy and management. At the executive management and C-suite level, visionary and effective leadership is needed to transform and improve management policies and processes in a highly competitive, market-driven environment.
These managers and executives must address such pressing issues as:
- How will we control health care costs as baby boomers age and medical technology continues to advance?
- How will health care dollars be allocated across generations?
- How can we measure quality of care?
- How can we ensure all U.S. residents have access to health care?
As the delivery system changes, career opportunities abound. The field needs transformation-minded leaders — in hospitals, health plans, medical practices, health-related enterprises and community health organizations — who have the passion, knowledge and skills to shape the future of health care.
