Employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services.
Medical and health services managers held about 333,000 jobs in 2014. Most medical
and health services managers work in offices in healthcare facilities, including hospitals
and nursing homes, and group medical practices. This becomes a realistic option for
the student looking to progress in their career within healthcare.
The increased demand for this field should create greater needs for physicians and other healthcare workers, medical procedures, and healthcare facilities, and therefore greater needs for managers who organize and manage medical information and healthcare staff. There should be increased demand for nursing care facility administrators as baby boomers age.
Employment is projected to grow in offices of health practitioners. Many services previously provided in hospitals will shift to these settings, especially as medical technologies improve. Demand in medical group practice management is projected to grow as medical group practices become larger and more complex.
In addition, widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) will continue to create
demand for managers with knowledge of health information technology (IT) and informatics
systems. Medical and health services managers will be needed to organize, manage,
and integrate these records across areas of the healthcare industry.
