What Do Clinical Consultants Do?
The treatment and care of patients is the top priority at any health care facility, and a lot goes on behind-the-scenes to ensure that proper patient care is provided. Clinical consultants are responsible for some of those background processes, as they work closely with both health care providers and outside vendors and take a proactive approach to improving and streamlining their facility's financial operations. They may be employed full-time, but part-time employment is somewhat more common.
