The Board's Evolving Role in Quality Oversight (Webinar)
Published by Texas Healthcare Trustees

By now, most hospital and health system boards have recognized the importance of quality oversight in fulfilling their fiduciary and governance responsibilities. But recognizing this responsibility and being comfortable in carrying it out are two very different experiences. Across the country, boards privately grapple with determining which information they should be looking at, understanding how their organization’s quality reports fits into the big picture of board oversight and worrying that they don’t know what they don’t know.

Join us for an informative and practical webinar exploring how successful boards have taken on quality oversight. Karma Bass and Erica Osborne will walk you through real?world examples of boards who have become more savvy and effective at this crucial governance responsibility. This webinar will focus on providing practical suggestions and straightforward ideas to enhance your board’s effectiveness in this area. No matter where your board currently is on its journey, this webinar will have something for you.

Learning Objectives:

What to look for in a board-level quality dashboard;
Why some boards choose to have a quality committee while others choose to work as a committee of the whole;
How to effectively engage medical staff physicians in the board’s quality oversight journey and pitfalls to avoid;
Where to look for new board members who can add quality oversight expertise to the board; and
When to drill deeper into quality metrics and when it’s okay to rely on the expertise of staff.
