Trustee Online - Finance and Reimbursement
Published by Texas Healthcare Trustees

Welcome to TRUSTEE ONLINE, providing 24/7 education for hospital and health care trustees. Exceptional boards add significant value to their organizations! They advance the common good with uncommonly good work.

Financial oversight of the hospital or health system often is viewed as the main function of the organization’s governing board. The fiduciary duty is one of the core responsibilities of trustees.

This module covers:
  • Discussion of board oversight and responsibility of the hospital’s financials;
  • Revenue and reimbursement breakdown - what trustees should know;
  • Examination of expenses and operations;
  • What financial reports to look at and what to look for; and
  • Much more!
Those who purchase this module will also receive one free copy of the corresponding guidebook.
