"Leading" in healthcare resource management means ensuring that the largest healthcare resource of all, the healthcare providers and staff, are (1) efficient and (2) and have effective working relationships amongst themselves.

To "manage" resources in healthcare management means to ensure that the "cost of people" has an effective impact on decisions and motivations during the engagement of human concerns and emotions in healthcare management and healthcare provision.
