Health management or healthcare management designates the process of organising and coordinating the performance of a healthcare facility. A health manager supervises the business and administrative aspects of a health care institution, and is responsible for the overall internal healthcare system, including clinical and non-clinical staff, partner organisations, insurance companies, government bodies, etc.

Key skills in healthcare administration include a natural inclination toward leadership, interpersonal skills, analytical abilities and an entrepreneurial mind-set. Universities and medical or business colleges offer degrees in healthcare management, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Academic programmes can be found under different titles such as health management and policy, healthcare management and insurance health service management, health administration, health management systems (HMS) or international health management. Regardless of specific curricula, the main focus of such programmes is to provide solid business and administrative knowledge in healthcare contexts. To attain a management position, healthcare professionals typically acquire an accredited degree such as Master of Public Health (MPH), Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Health Administration (MHA) or Master of Public Administration (MPA).

Career opportunities for graduates include hospital and health system management, clinical human resource, medical group administration, pharmaceutical companies, care management organisations, supply chain companies, government or policy organisations, health insurers, and consulting.
