CHC Prescription for Board Competency Featured in HealthLeaders Magazine

At a time when hospitals are under extreme pressure, only 66 percent of CEOs consider their boards strong or very strong and 11 percent consider them weak or very weak, as published in HealthLeaders Media Industry Survey 2013. Many boards simply aren’t up to speed on all the forces at work in the current healthcare climate, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Boards require education to make sense of these challenges and assess the long-term viability of their organizations.

 

CHC Consulting, the management and consulting arm of CHC, works with hospital boards on education as well as strategic vision. CEO Mike Williams shared best practices for hospital boards in the May cover story of HealthLeaders magazine, “Building Better Boards,” including:

  • A longer commitment by board members of three, three-year terms
  • A robust quality committee with multidisciplinary clinical representation
  • More active and vocal audit and compliance committees
  • Placing more accountability on the CEO
  • Engaging in advocacy efforts and dialog with elected officials
