    • Governmental agencies and public companies, including insurers, will be interested in the extent to which hospital boards have adopted the provisions of accounting reform laws like those introduced by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It will remain for the boards to balance their oversight role for financial performance with the pressures of financial accountability.
       
  9. "Hospital Governance: Global Hospital Governance Study Calls for Better Board Development." James A. Rice, Ph.D., FACHE President, International Health Summit, UK and USA. (Undated online article)
     
    • A good corporate governance regime is central to the efficient use of corporate capital. Good corporate governance also helps to ensure that corporations take into account the interests of a wide range of constituencies, as well as of the communities within which they operate, and that their boards are accountable to the company and the shareholders.

    • The composition of the board of directors varies systematically across ownership types; poor performance and low levels of uncompensated care increase board turnover, with this sensitivity varying by organizational type. Poor performance, high administrative costs, and high uncompensated care lead to higher CEO turnover, with these effects again varying across different organizational types.

    • This research study, done by researchers at the University of Iowa led by Lawrence Prybil, Ph.D., focuses on three important areas of healthcare governance: board structure and composition; board practices and processes; and board culture. These three areas are often cited as areas of governance that governing boards need to focus on if they are to achieve a strong and effective governing board.
