More healthcare organisations are using this strategy to improve management and facilitate proper service delivery.

In healthcare, service lines are set up in a way that makes them easier to manage and helps the health centers make more money. Healthcare service lines are set up by giving line leaders more power, starting with strong leaders and naming managers (Buchbinder, Shanks & Kite, 2019). Service lines need strong leaders who are ready to change the organization in order to help it grow and develop. Empowerment of leadership ensures proper leaders are selected to drive the strategic line of service line management.

Conclusively, healthcare service lines are critical in an organisation. They help ensure strategic management as well as spur financial growth. To structure a healthcare service line there is need to empower leaders, strengthen leadership and appoint service line mangers to take up the tasks.
