Careers in Healthcre Administration (Financial Counseling & Planning)
When thinking about a career in healthcare, images of doctors or nurses might be the first to come to mind. But there are hundreds of different healthcare careers, from the people who administer the healing to the people who administer the industry. These work behind the scenes in rewarding jobs at all levels of responsibility and pay assisting clinic staff and helping patients determine how best to pay for their medical services.
The Manager of Financial Counseling oversees financial counselors who work with patients in walking them through the billing process. The Clinic’s Financial Analysts oversee expenditures and receipts enabling the administration and medical staff provide services to the clients and customers. Both of the positons require high written and oral communication skills. Backgrounds in communications, finance and marketing are a must.
Like any good business, healthcare needs quality managers to maintain a smoothly running organization. They plan and supervise the delivery of services by doctors, nurses, and technicians. Each operation needs someone to track trends in an ever-changing industry and to keep the business on the cutting edge. Healthcare administrators play an important role in keeping the community healthy.
