a guiding point for them. It would also set the foundation for the hospital. Private, physician owned  corporations that offer specialty outpatient care do not do all that well and are usually less efficient than  a hospital-oriented HCOs. A public for profit hospital ownership has suffered in recent years due to  major legal issues though and largest for profit companies have all settled major Medicare claims.  However with the not for profit ownership gives the local community more control over the size and  scope of the healthcare enterprise (p. 85). They would have to rethink the expansion/closure, local  affiliations, regional affiliations, relations to insurers, relation to physicians and relation to employees.  For not for profit HCOs board members must recognize the community as owner. These characteristics  predict these critical skills, familiarity with the community, familiarity with business decisions, available  time, a record of success, and reputation. With the HCOs running it the trustee has responsibility for the  medical staff and there is a difference of the concept of peer review.  1.2. How would the mission be different if a governmental unit ran the organization? * Or the  institution of your choice. Note that several missions are summarized in Exhibit 1.7. It would be more organized and focused more on what the committees agreed on and not what the  community really wants.  2. Describe the board’s role in quality and safety? How does the board ensure that the highest  quality of care is being provided? To whom does the board delegate the responsibility of  carrying out clinical quality and safety? They would come up with a quality and safety agenda, service lines, empowerment and  transformational management culture, performance measurement, and continuous improvement. They  provide a checklist for what must be done for the month.  3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
