Governance Megatrends: What is the Impact on Your Board?
Hospital and health system boards are facing many challenges as the world transitions from a multi-year pandemic to an endemic situation. The health care field is experiencing instability and near-constant elements of change: innovation in medicine and service delivery, new competitors, payor upheaval, renewed scrutiny on the social determinants of health and more. This presentation will focus on the trends that are of greatest relevance in the 2022 boardroom. Special attention will be drawn to the impact on governance, including a discussion of how to best prioritize board time on the most significant issues. Participants will leave the session with a road map to identify and address the governance megatrends of greatest impact to their own board.
- Examine the trends that will have the most impact in hospital and health system board rooms in 2022 and beyond.
- Describe the governance implications and associated board-level decision points of each megatrend.
- Develop an action plan that will enable your board to be proactive and anticipatory in a constantly changing environment.
