2 WEEK 9 ASSIGNMENT 2 HSA 300 Health Services Organization Management Introduction Every organization is always focused at improving its performance. Every employee in the organization has their contribution to the organization’s performance. The governing body of Middleville in this case has the responsibility of ensuring that all departments of the organization perform well. This paper explains the governing board’s role in various strategic initiatives while exploring its responsibility and involvement. Next, the paper outlines some major performance measures that Middleville can use to measure its success. The benefits and costs associated with implementing EMR and other associated health data systems are also discussed in this paper. The paper concludes by giving suggestions to human resource to promote employee satisfaction hence retaining experienced personnel. Governing Boards Role and Role in Strategic Initiatives Board governors in many organizations are involved in making the strategic goals of a company. They are the ones conferred with the responsibility of making the most pertinent decisions in an institution or organization. As such, they formulate policies, make decisions as well as performing oversight responsibilities in the institution (Sharon Buchbinder., 2017 p.34). Effectiveness and efficiency in the dispensation of Board’s duties and responsibilities is a very important aspect as it keeps the organization on the move. In fact, an organization where the board is not adequately decisive ends up grappling with management problems which are likely to affect the organization’s activities or total collapse. It is important to note that the creation of policies by the board creates a very good trajectory for the making of an institution’s decisions. When policy-making is effectively executed, oversight roles among other strategic decisions becomes an easy task for the Board.

Proper formulation of policies are likely to elicit smooth and effective functioning of the Board members. Besides writing them down, they should constantly be reviewed to make any relevant corrections which may lag down the institution. Reviewing of the decisions implies periodic checking to confirm if the policies are in tandem with the organizational objectives and goals. The decision-making tool involves requiring the Board to be in position to facilitate the achievement of the institution’s values, mission, objectives, and the vision. As earlier stated the decisions made by the Board are strategic and are futuristic in nature. Usually they span a period of more than 5 years. This means

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
