TRUSTEE TRACK — HEALTH CARE TRUSTEES:  THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE

COMMUNITIES THAT HEAL THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER

The Westminster Free Clinic helps bridge gaps in the health care system by offering critical services and support to individuals who cannot afford and/or do not have access to basic health care. The clinic improves community health and instills a passion in local high school teenagers to serve underprivileged populations and pursue careers in health care. This presentation is an in-depth look into the 99% volunteer-based program and how Dr. Steve Kamajian inspires health care professionals to recruit and inspire others to improve community health. Dr. Kamajian
outlines the steps, components, and commitment of “the village” so others can achieve the same outrageous goals.

BOARD LEADERSHIP: ACHIEVING CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS THROUGH STRATEGY & FINANCIAL PLANNING
Boards face numerous challenges and decisions as the pace of change in the health care industry continues to accelerate. A key approach for boards is to determine the critical success factors for their organization. Then, board and management need to strategize to achieve those critical success factors and determine the financial
impact. Management needs to implement strategies to achieve those success factors, and the board needs to have significant input in developing these strategies and monitoring their accomplishment. This session will provide participants with the process and tools to define critical success factors; to learn how these need to be integrated into the strategic and financial plan; and to discuss the key metrics for measuring results.

CYBERSECURITY, HIPAA AUDITS, AND PROTECTING ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS
Much has been written and discussed about cybersecurity and protecting electronic health records (EHR). Breaches and ransomware are a daily occurrence. The government has scheduled more on-site and desk audits. Is the hospital’s EHR safe? Are hospitals ready for a government audit? Is the hospital taking the correct procedures to ensure its Protected Health Information (PHI)? In this session we will consider PHI safeguards and the Board’s role; learn how to prepare for a government audit; and learn how to understand a Corrective Action Plan and why you
should have one.
