Health care organizations (HCOs) are complex systems. They train and organize resources such as staff, manage buildings full of medical equipment such as hospital beds, x-ray machines, and intravenous pumps, and provide services such as diagnosis, surgery, and a host of treatments. The end game is to maintain good health, return those with illness/injury to optimal health, and allocate a scarce resource. Management for these complex systems used to hold business degrees. Increasingly, they are being required to hold degrees in health care leadership. Emerging health systems require increasing sophistication from leaders who understand how to work in teams, optimize use of staff, and create a shared vision of the future.
