The Intersection of Governance, Risk Management and Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement Efforts

A resource issued by the Office of Inspector General states: “Governing boards of health care organizations increasingly are called to respond to important new developments – clinical, operational and regulatory – associated with quality of care… These new issues are so critical to the operation of health care organizations that they require attention and oversight, as a matter of fiduciary obligation, by the governing board.”Consistent with such expectation, the HRSA Compliance Manual requires that health center boards must approve their Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement (QI/QA) Plan and evaluate the performance of the health center based on QI/QA assessments. In addition, the board has a significant role with regard to the implementation and oversight of risk management activities.  During this webinar, the presenters will delve into the board’s duties with regard to QI/QA and risk management activities, providing advice and guidance including practical tips for effective performance.
