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*****agement perspective, what the challenges were in the present health care industry. Overall, when assured of confidentiality, the individual responded to me that ***** care presents so***** of the most difficult emotional and practical challenges, from a management *****, for any ********** administrator. One of the most difficult organizational communication challenges is negotiating the completely different perspectives of the health care professionals in the arena of care, such as the doctors and nurses, with individuals at ***** hospital primarily concerned with cutting costs ***** fulfilling administr*****ive, rather than care giving functions.

*****, even doctors, nurses, and other practitioners primarily ***** with care can be at odds amongst **********. In today's cost-***** environment, nurses are often called upon to per*****m the tasks of *****. This can cause anger on the part of the doctors, and also anger ***** the ***** of the nurses who *****lieve that their diagnostic ***** treatment capabilities ***** not accorded enough respect. Also, physician's assistants are increasingly asked to fulfill the functions of *****, which *****s organizational conflict, as well as ***** fact that physician ***** are asked ***** perform, quite *****ten, the tasks of aids, despite their job description. Mediation and an adequate counseling *****d human resource staff has provided some relief.

Additional challenges for ***** members relate to the increasingly arcane referral system at local *****s, ***** are *****ten misunderstood by both patients and caregivers. It is often tempting for individuals responsible for ***** financial management of the hospital to sacrifice care, to preserve budgetary needs and constraints, and it ***** *****ten ***** ***** physicians and nurses to attempt to circumvent the ***** protocols of insurance referrals, in the interest ***** preserving ***** best care for *****, but putting the hospital at ***** and legal risk. ***** between different arms of the hospital is essential in meeting these *****. Frequent staff meetings to keep doc*****rs and ***** abreast ***** the often ***** language of the insurance industry, and of the ***** and public relations state ***** the ***** is just as necessary as keeping o*****r budgetary and administrative members aware of the changes and challenges in the health care
