What does a healthcare project manager do?

Project managers in the healthcare industry are responsible for the success of projects through meeting deadlines, deliverables, and budgets. They oversee all aspects and work closely with stakeholders, team members, vendors, contractors, and other departments to ensure that everything is efficient. 

Healthcare projects require special attention as they deal with very sensitive information which needs to be protected at all times. Project managers need many skills in order to maintain this balance: technical capabilities, social responsibility, negotiation tactics, and human resource knowledge.

A healthcare project manager might take care of anything from setting up assessment tools or reviewing compliance processes; managing computer networks or digging through medical journals—depending upon what is required by their company’s clientele (e.g., hospitals). A typical day could include any number of tasks, such as:

  • Collaborating with other team members to analyze, design, and manage initiatives that are implemented throughout the branch.
  • Work in collaboration with the other project managers, liaising with information system resources, cross functional teams and relevant business partners.
  • Participate in inter-departmental discussions with individuals from various government branches and private company partners to devise a plan for any proposed project or initiative.
  • Analyzing the financial performance of projects in order to meet budget and target goals.
  • Lead, organize and facilitate key stakeholder communications around national goals, objectives and progress on projects and initiatives.

Is healthcare project management a good career?

Yes, being a project manager within a healthcare company is a lucrative and rewarding career path. The average salary for project management is approximately $74,166/year or $36.00 an hour according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. The top ten percent of earners make more than $150,000 annually. Project managers can also receive bonuses based on performance. Since healthcare is an evergreen industry, there will always be a demand for professionals with your skillset.

Are healthcare project managers in demand?

Yes, healthcare project managers are in high demand. This is due to the increase of technology within this industry and the need for more effective communication between departments.

There are many opportunities available with a vast range of companies from hospitals to community clinics, even pharma-wholesalers. The best thing about working as a manager in this field is that you have an opportunity to make a great impact on people's lives every day while still being paid well.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, there will be one million new jobs created by 2020 in these industries combined.
