Healthcare Transformation (Paperback)27th April 2009
This manual provides hospital board members and executives with practical guidance on their roles and an opportunity to be not only literate in healthcare quality, but supportive and engaged in the transformation of their organization. It is not about board committee structures and charters, agenda setting, and legal fiduciary aspects of being a board member in today’s climate. It is about how the healthcare industry is transforming and how board members must be knowledgeable and skillful in leading this charge.
Intentionally concise, this book is ideal for orienting new board members and for providing more experienced board members with a knowledge base and questions to facilitate engagement on these important issues. After an introductory chapter, there are 10 chapters that articulate each of the 10 healthcare transformers. Each of those 10 chapters includes –
- The Problem: A brief, quantitative look at the problem
- The Transformer: What will transform and make healthcare different
- Best Practices: Examples of current best practices indicative of the transformer
- Board Questions: Questions every board member should consider asking and every executive should be prepared to answer
A concluding chapter provides the overall governance engagement checklist—the things to do to make certain that board members and governance and senior leader colleagues are on becoming engaged and prepared to lead your organization’s transformation.
