Health is one of the brittle global issues of concern today. Being a global issue, it’s only fair to view this issue at a global perspective. One of the common problem-solving techniques is to focussing on eminent dangers and working a way to solutions. The health sector has received tonnes of funds in a bid to stabilize its rather shaky management. Needless to say, this has not been successful. This is because these funds to impact the desired transformations are being handled by a poor management. For as long as its management system is not susceptible to reforms, they are bound to face catastrophic future challenges. It is however important to note that, some future challenges are inevitable.
Information and Technology Skepticism
With increased technology, the health care management system will face I.T-related issues. Technology has proven to be constantly changing. As it is today, the health care organizations are really struggling to keep in tandem with ever rolling wheel of technology. Acquire the best equipment for scanning cancerous cells today, tomorrow would mark the launch of more powerful similar equipment. It is unarguable that the future is rich in advanced technology. The healthcare managers will definitely have to spend more so as to acquire the advanced equipment. Like it’s one of the major challenges today, future health management organizations would still need to keep on toes with the drastic future changes in technology.
The rate of inflation in the world is always rising. Statista’s statistics predicts the rate of U.S. inflation approaching 2020 to be about 2% per annum. Holding their expenditure list constant, health managers would have to spend more in future to acquire the same commodity they use today. This includes daily bills such as electricity and water which indispensable. This again is inevitable because there are so many external factors involved. Having clarified this, there is need for the health care management to be fully prepared to financial challenge. The management should consider having more external sources of revenue (Mosquera, 2010). Depending on grants and fundraising would create uncertainty on the future of the management.
With the current emphasis on basic and advanced education, people around the world are getting informed by day. As much as we celebrate more brains into our health management bureaus, this can also be dangerous. Knowledge plus wrong motive can be spiteful danger. The famous embezzlement of funds through salami attacks is just but the tip of an ice-bag of what the future holds. We are looking at multi-billion organizations manufacturing fake medicinal drugs. We are seeing self-imposed doctors having licenses and running big clinics. The health care management will be challenged to deal with these fraudulent cases.
It is very difficult for a weak system to heal itself. There is need for independent bodies to be formed so as to ascertain a flourishing health management sector. This fight would definitely begin with general leaders who should say no to being used as puppets. If drastic measures are not taken, then the healthcare management systems are as good as defamatory structures.
