Risk Management for the Board

May 21, 2019

Health Center Boards of Directors must have meaningful engagement with their organization’s risk management program. From reviewing and discussing the annual risk management report to participating in risk management training, the Board must demonstrate substantive participation in risk management at the health center.

HRSA/BPHC will review the Board’s participation as part of various compliance reviews: both the Section 330 Operational Site Visits and Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Site Visits assess the Board’s role in risk management as part of the health center’s compliance with the FTCA Program.

This webinar is divided into two parts:

Part I is designed for health center staff to understand the risk management requirements for their Boards of Directors, documentation of compliance with these requirements, and how to involve the Board in risk management. 

Part II will be a presentation that health center staff can use as a framework to train its own Board of Directors. Topics in the sample Board presentation will include general concepts of risk management, as well as how the FTCA program works and the Board’s oversight role.   

This webinar will cover the Board’s responsibility to participate in the health center’s risk management program including:

  • Review of the Board-related risk management requirements in the 330 Operational Site Visit and FTCA Site Visit;
  • Development of the Annual Risk Management Report to the Board of Directors; and
  • An example of Annual Risk Management and FTCA Training for the Board of Directors.
