Audience

This webinar series is designed for hospital and health system governing boards, CEOs and senior executives, physicians, and other leaders with governance responsibilities.


The following program content was provided by the speaker.


Webinar Series Overview

Trustees play a significant role in the transformation of health care and must demonstrate strong leadership to navigate through the challenges, that confront their organizations. The future of health care still is largely unknown, and the range of board responsibilities is broad. Hospitals and health systems need dedicated and knowledgeable individuals who are willing to commit their time, expertise, experience and leadership to the hospital, its mission and the community.

This webinar series will provide participants with the tools to become more effective in their board service. Participants will receive guidance related to governance obligations, legal risks, fiduciary responsibilies, privacy and patient security risks, civil rights responsibilities, and health care fraud and waste. Attorney Barbara Person with Baird Holm LLP will provide valuable expertise on the legal aspects of board responsibilities.


Part I Overview

Once a hospital board member is aware of their responsibilities under state facilities licensure law, the Medicare program, Internal Revenue Service requirements for tax-exempt entities and accreditation standards, it’s hard to know how to honor them. What’s the appropriate level of attention? Is there guidance on how to participate meaningfully versus annoying the management team? What are the appropriate boundaries in this industry? This session will detail the duty of care and discuss the difference between oversight and management as well as identify the chair’s role in maintaining balance between management and the board.


Objectives

  • describe corporate law guidance on the duty of care
  • recognize the difference between oversight and day-to-day management
  • identify the chair’s role in maintaining balance between management and board personnel
