Provides essential information to health care professionals serving on nonprofit boards as trustees Covers the most important issues confronting modern nonprofit boards in the health care sector Fills a major gap in the education of health care professionals Looks at the future role of health care boards Medical professionals who serve on the boards of private, nonprofit institutions often do so with much more diligence than knowledge. Very little material exists to cover the range of issues that are so vital at a time when health care institutions face patient overloads, budget shortages, and calls for reform. Written by leading health care advocates and authorities, Governance for Health Care Providers: The Call to Leadershipprovides health care board members with a comprehensive, thoughtful, and disciplined review across areas that are critical to contemporary health care governance. Covers a full range of inter-related topics from staff compensation to the practitioner board member’s role in the recruitment and stewardship of donors Readily accessible and exceptionally well-organized, this resource provides essential materials needed by physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals to fulfill their expanded and often unanticipated responsibilities as trustees. It helps define the functions of board members and summarizes the problems that they are most likely to face. The book covers finance, compliance, funding, and strategic planning issues, and also examines legal duties, current trends in quality, conflicts of interest, corporate structure, and governance best practices. Designed to help the practitioner board member find his or her place at the table, this volume is an indispensable guide for all medical institution boards, providing a comprehensive overview of the key components of board oversight and presenting recommendations to prepare for governance in a future that promises rapid change.
