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 largely is unknown, and the range of board responsibilities is broad. Hospitals need dedicated and knowledgeable individuals who are willing to commit 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 responsibilities, privacy and patient security risks, civil rights responsibilities, and health care fraud and waste.

Part III Overview

Adherence to the Open Meetings Act is mandatory for all governmental boards, including hospital district and county hospital boards. This law changes frequently, especially as technology advances, and all trustees will benefit from a refresher on the law and an update on important changes.
