Medical practice governance – How you can ensure its effectiveness
Abstract: All medical practices are governed in some fashion or another, whether by an individual owner or a formal board of directors. Governance can be a difficult job for physicians who are already working long hours. This article explains how to form a governing board and how to address certain issues, such as how frequently the board should meet and who should set the agenda and handle minute-taking. Fortunately, a competent governance structure can help physicians meet those challenges.
