About Hospital Administration

Indian healthcare sector is growing at a rapid rate. It has been estimated that till 2022, the sector will grow at a cumulative average rate of 16% and will touch US$ 372 billion revenue mark (IBEF). The sector is to create 7.4 million jobs till 2022 (KPMG India). The majority of these revenue and jobs will be created by the hospital sector that constitutes 70% of the healthcare sector. With growing sector, the demand for professionally trained hospital mangers is also on the surge. A better managed hospital results in superior quality health outcomes, and satisfied patients. Currently, In India, there is severe paucity of professionally trained hospital administrators. Limited number of academic institutes are focused on producing professional hospital administrators. Lack of a professional hospital administrator hampers doctor’s ability to solely focus on the medical care that may result in inefficient outcomes for the hospital. Lack of trained administrators also result in inadequate second line of leadership in many hospitals and pose a serious challenge to the sustainability of the hospitals. Thus, professional hospital administrator has a pivotal role for growing healthcare sector that is driven to serve the people.
