Healthcare vs. Health Care
Contrary to popular belief, these two terms are not interchangeable. If you plan to study this particular field, it is imperative that you know the difference between healthcare and health care.
Health care – term used to refer to the wide range of services with which a patient may be provided; services provided to improve patient mental and physical health
Healthcare – term used to describe the system or systems in which medical professionals perform health care
Healthcare Management (Specialized for Hospital Management)
Healthcare management is mainly a responsibility in the field of healthcare administration; therefore, it would be a wise decision to major in healthcare administration so that you are able to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to gain high authority in and run healthcare facilities. If you follow the path to earn a degree in healthcare management you will learn many of the same topics that health administration covers, like how healthcare facilities are run. Once you reach the job market, however, you will find yourself restricted and answering to health administration offices.
