Patient Services Managers structure their activities to anticipate and respond to the impact of managed care and other market forces on health care delivery. They ensure that their unit(s) demonstrate superior outcomes, provide seamless delivery of care, and maintain competitive cost structures. Each manager is responsible for a defined functional area of patient services and must collaborate with others to achieve the hospital's strategic objectives and mission: patient service, teaching, research, and community service. The Patient Services Manager serves as the direct link between hospital strategies and the staff on the patient care team.
