The Hospital and Health System Board Member Reference Guide (Seventh Edition)
The responsibilities placed on the shoulders of hospital board members today are considerable. First, there is the charge of maintaining a healthy financial future for the organization in order to maintain quality care for the community. That’s probably the easiest part. But today, market dynamics are intensifying the challenge. Competition and local provider activity greatly complicate matters. Reduced reimbursements can make cost containment seem impossible. Consumers expect increased and instant access to care. Higher and higher quality scores and improved patient satisfaction ratings are imperative.
With all this pressure, what's a board member to do? It helps to have a guide.
That's why we've written this book. It gives practical advice to both new and seasoned board members on how to approach their responsibilities and carry out their duties.
All you have to do to get a copy is ask.
