The medical sector is famously inefficient. Bureaucracy and regulation make it hard for people with an entrepreneurial spirit to enter the industry and make a difference for the better. But that could soon be changing.
Politicians and those in the medical sector recognize that things cannot stay as they are. We can’t continue with the status quo. There is a need for people with creative energy to get into the sector and transform it in a way that’s beneficial for patients – the end-users.
The problem at the moment is that there’s a lack of skilled people getting into healthcare administration. Healthcare administration isn’t just filing away patient records or speaking to people at the reception desk: it’s about much more than that. It’s concerned with finding ways of making the healthcare system more efficient and productive. People in admin roles need to actively think about how they can streamline healthcare practices and allow them to deliver a higher quality of service at lost cost.
Exactly how to do this and why it’s essential remains a mystery for some in the healthcare industry, but it shouldn’t. As the following infographic shows, there are all kinds of areas in which people with a business-minded approach can enter the healthcare sector and make a difference that benefits patients, the wider community and the country as a whole.
