  • Physician Organization Governance: Transformation and Three Perspectives

    To understand how the governance of physician-led organizations is different, and similar, to that of health care systems, the AHA’s Center for Healthcare Governance and Physician Leadership Forum undertook a study to examine governance structures and functions in a diverse set of physician organizations. The resulting report, The Blue Ribbon Panel on Governance of Physician Organizations, examines how physician organizations govern themselves, come together as groups and impart the discipline and get the outcomes needed to be successful. In follow up to the report, the AHA convened an educational session to share highlights of the study and provide an in-depth examination from three leading-edge case studies. Proceedings from that session are now available by clicking here »
