About the Session
As large health systems continue to evolve, the role of the local governing councils is changing. While there is the desire to preserve the legacies, traditions and the important philanthropic role of a local governing council, system governance requirements suggest that hospital executives transition to a governing council with responsibility for quality, safety and medical staff rather than the traditional fiduciary functions. This program will share the key elements of success in evaluating, designing and implementing a transition plan. It will focus on steps to create engaging governance and ensure there is clarity in the roles, responsibilities and direction as well as integration with strategic priorities.
- Identify leadership keys to success and necessary action to transform your governing council, including the key elements required for successful oversight.
- Describe an effective governing council self-assessment instrument that measures and monitors performance, including its use to effectively advance and attain goals.
