Interview Overview—Management in Health Care

***** the purposes of this assignment, I interviewed an individual at a local hospital, to ask them, from a m*****nagement perspective, what the challenges were in the present health care industry. Overall, when assured of confidentiality, ***** individual responded ***** me that health care presents so***** ***** the most difficult emotional and practical challenges, from a management *****, for any management-level administrator.

Also, physician's assistants are increasingly asked to fulfill the functions of *****, which *****s organizational conflict, as well ***** the fact that physician ***** are asked to perform, quite *****ten, the tasks of aids, despite their job description. Mediation and an adequate counseling *****d human resource staff has provided some relief.

Frequent staff *****s to keep doctors and ***** abreast of the *****ten ***** language of the insurance industry, and of ***** ***** and public relations state of the ***** is just as necessary as keeping other budgetary and admin*****trative members aware of the changes and challenges in the health care
