Hospital boards and medical staffs often have differing perspectives and unique cultures, which can lead to a disconnect between the two. The board-medical staff relationship should be a trusting partnership, where both the staff and board work closely together to provide quality care. There are actions that board members can take to improve alignment to build a high functioning, strong hospital and medical staff relationship. HTNYS identified Board-Medical Staff Relationships as an essential topic and key to strengthening the capabilities of governance leaders.
Through the Essentials for Governance Excellence program, HTNYS members have access to 18 essential topics, 11 resource modules and advisory services that enable hospital and health system boards to achieve outstanding governance and ensure leadership for their communities. The Essentials for Governance Excellence program is accessed via an annual subscription. HTNYS members receive special pricing.

To help health system leaders and boards use their governance time most effectively, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has created a white paper that includes three components: 1) Framework for Governance of Health System Quality; 2) Governance of Quality Assessment; and 3) Three support guides.
Boards should set expectations, understand the metrics and ask key questions. Goals aimed at ensuring quality and safety are high priorities for boards. In this age of value-based purchasing (VBP), hospitals are evaluated and rewarded on clinical processes of care, efficiencies, outcomes and the patient experience of care.
