Corporate Board Responsibility
Corporate boards are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that the organization remains in compliance with all areas of operation. Boards need to work in tandem with the administrative staff. Boards must ensure that they review all areas of health care organizations from financials, operations issues, medical error reporting, credentialing of providers, and other potential risk areas. Review the readings and the PowerPoint presentation in this week’s readings.
What should the Board know? Create a one-page, single-spaced memo as a member of a governing board for a health care organization. Direct this memo the organization’s CEO. List the reports that you would like to have prepared for next month’s board meeting.
Assume the role of the CEO who received the memo. Respond to at least two other learners. Provide your response to the memo. You may wish to suggest other information that may be considered or another perspective that could be considered. Does the memo reflect collegiality and a sense of collaboration? Do you feel compelled to act? Should you react to this situation, or should you take a proactive approach? Why? How?
