They help with budgets with each department head, discusses medical equipment and supply needs with physicians, and delegates follows up on any tasks related to the operation of the practice. A health care manager also helps the medical staff and helps run daily operations of the facility. This includes office staff, billing departments, doctors and, nurses and custodial staff.
