The term health services manager encompasses individuals in many different positions, including healthcare executives and administrators who plan, organize, coordinate, and supervise the delivery of health care. These individuals lead change that aligns with current healthcare laws and regulations, as well as current trends in technology and services models to meet the needs of the community(s) they serve. Health services managers include both generalists (administrators who manage or help to manage an entire facility or system), and health specialists (managers in charge of specific departments or services found only in the health care industry), and executives (administrators responsible for healthcare delivery systems, or the divisions within healthcare delivery healthcare systems).
