Health care is the improvement or maintenance of health through diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of illness, disease, injury, and other ailments or impairments, both physically and mentally in human beings. Health care is delivered by health professionals such as providers or practitioners in related health fields. Physicians and physician associates constitute a part of these health care professionals. Health care systems are organizations that meet the health needs and requirements of targeted populations. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are certain requirements for a well-functioning health care system. These include a strong financing mechanism, well-founded information on which to form policies and decisions, a workforce that is well trained and decently paid; and well-maintained health facilities and logistics to deliver quality technologies and medicines. Health care consultants provide services or expertise to health care consulting firms. These services are not accessible in-house and are generally needed for a limited time. In some situations, consulting can be contemplated when companies are looking for the skills in-house but are not ready to commit to hiring. Health care consultants deliver knowledge so that individuals can make the appropriate and best decision for their health. Health care consultants are well remunerated and have the freedom to set their own schedules and also to select their clients. The term health care consultant or health care business consultant is also used for professionals or firms that specialize in delivering business consulting services (health care management or health care administration) to the health care industry. The National Society of Certified Healthcare Business Consultants (NSCHBC) in the U.S. is a prominent trade association for business consultants in the health care industry. NSCHBC educates, certifies, and sets standards for its members.
