HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT IN DIVERSE SETTINGS2Health Care Management in Diverse SettingsIntroductionThere are two main settings in the healthcare field. The one that people visit the most is a physician’s practice, whereas people normally do not go to the hospital all that often. Health care administrator’s roles in healthcare facilities have changed in the last 50 years. Today health care administrators are involved in patient’s continuum of care. Knowing how to handle patient care and the roles and responsibilities of each administrator is important when working with a diverse staff. These roles and managementapproaches vary across a hospital setting and a physician’s practice. Continuum of CareContinuum of care is a system of care that tracks a patient over time and through multiple providers and levels of care (Evashwick, 1989). It is important that the continuumof care stay consistent and complete throughout a patient’s lifetime. Throughout a patient’s life, the physician’s practice, the hospital, and any other medical services must work together when it comes to a patient’s continuum of care. Treatment plans vary from hospital to physician’s practice. In the hospital setting, a treatment plan is set in place to help get the patient well enough so that they can go back to their physician’s practice. Physician’s practice’s goals are to help prevent health problems and maintain a patient’s health.
