A Health Care Organization
A health care organization is an organization that deals with treatment and prevention of illnesses on an on-going basis. Health care organizations are public sectors. Health care organizations are different from other organizations and this paper will highlight some of those differences.
One of the key differences of health care organizations from other types of organizations is that all health care organizations are operated and owned by the government while other sectors other than health care may be composed of organizations that are not operated by the government. Therefore, this shows that health care is a public body or federal institution.
The other difference is that health care organizations function in supplying services to the public and do not compete with other institutions in terms of profit making. Other organizations on the other hand are often profit-making organizations that compete with other institutions. These organizations set goals that aim at overtaking the competing organizations in order to increase the amount of profits made.
It is also noteworthy that health care organizations are managed by a chain of control and command while other organizations that are under the private sector are managed in a corporate setting. It is also evident that health care organizations have to stick to what is in the government laws while other organizations operate under the laws and rules set by corporate owners and shareholders.
Lastly, it is important to note that the general public is the key beneficiary of the services provided by health care organizations. This is not the case with other organizations whereby the general public is considered the key consumer of the goods and services provided by these organizations which aim at generating profits.
In conclusion, the health care organization is greatly different from most other organizations due to the mentioned points.
