Healthcare is the maintenance or improvement of health via the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in people.
It is delivered by health professionals in allied health fields. Physicians and physician associates are a part of these health professionals. It includes work done in providing primary care, secondary care, and tertiary care, as well as in public health.
Healthcare systems are organizations established to meet the health needs of targeted populations. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a well-functioning healthcare system requires a financing mechanism, a well-trained and adequately paid workforce, reliable information on which to base decisions and policies, and well maintained health facilities to deliver quality medicines and technologies.
An efficient health care system can contribute to a significant part of a country's economy, development and industrialization. Healthcare is conventionally regarded as an important determinant in promoting the general physical and mental health and well-being of people around the world.
