News, updates and insights covering hospital management, including leadership, management and administration.

Management in healthcare is one of the key areas that define an organisation's ability to implement strategies across divisions effectively.

The goal of healthcare management is to achieve the institution's goals by leveraging human, financial, and technical resources. This includes strategic and operational management activities such as supply chain management, human resources management, performance management and improvement, financial management, medical supply chain news and governance. Without these activities, resources cannot be effectively deployed to maximise health outcomes. 


In today's healthcare environment, effective leadership by healthcare professionals is critical. The primary driver behind this is the need to improve the quality of healthcare provision in the face of ever-increasing healthcare demands and the requirement for improved efficiency and productivity. There are several reasons why quality improvement programmes fail, but one of the most crucial reasons is a lack of involvement among medical professionals and their aversion to change. Clinicians who take on leadership responsibilities must overcome these obstacles and create a leadership style that is inclusive and satisfies the requirements of healthcare workers. However, collaborative leadership is more likely to generate and sustain quality improvement. 

Supply chain  

The primary goals of healthcare supply chain management are to improve visibility and efficiency across the supply chain. During the pandemic, this expanded to include the strategic goal of improving supply chain agility and resilience, which was critical in the time of increased uncertainty and volatility in both supply and demand conditions. When health supply chain management is done correctly, supply partners are better equipped to recognise and handle bottlenecks, possible interruptions, and other concerns that may arise anywhere along the supply chain. It has the potential to improve patient care and safety while also reducing waste and costs.  

A high-performing supply chain function may improve resilience and care, raise physician satisfaction, cut supplier expenditure by up to 10 per cent, and better position health systems to fulfil their growth goals, according to a survey by McKinsey. 

Medical tourism  

A multi-billion-dollar industry that continues to grow, medical tourism has become a vital component of the healthcare sector. There is currently a race to discover which nations will profit from this expanding international market. The industry has seen phenomenal growth in the amount of money and resources that nations throughout the world spend to entice medical tourists with concierge and hospitality services and high-quality, reasonably priced, specialised care. As a result, there has been an increase in interest in the development of professional standards intended to safeguard both the nature of the commercial opportunities present in this emerging sector and the quality and safety of patient treatment.
