Behind the scenes of every hospital, health system and healthcare practice are teams of non-medical professionals keeping the day-to-day operations of the organization running. They are administrators and managers working in healthcare business jobs like health policy, finance, information systems and billing and coding. These are the critical individuals who are aware of healthcare service lines and industry trends, can speak intelligently around medical concerns and issues and are continuously working to improve the nuances of the patient experience.
