The 2011 Annual Trustees Conference will be held at The Sagamore on Lake George on September 16-18.
The 2011 HTNYS Annual Trustees Conference, which was designed with trustees in mind, will focus on board leadership and has been designed for health care trustees and executives who are on the front lines of the ever-changing health care environment. The Conference will also provide health care leaders with the opportunity to learn strategies that will assist them in becoming leaders in an era where health care reform is restructuring care delivery and reimbursement. Additionally, the Conference will offer attendees opportunities to network with colleagues and develop new leadership strengths.
Mr. Iseman’s session, “Board Oversight of Financial Arrangements with Physicians-Keeping You (and Your Hospital) Out of Trouble with the Law,” is scheduled for 8 a.m. on Saturday, September 17, and will include practical and directive advice on how trustees can provide legally sufficient board oversight of a hospital’s financial arrangements with physicians. He will discuss how best to manage the risks to boards, individual trustees, and hospitals; the proper roles of governance and management in the area of corporate compliance; and how to implement an effective compliance and audit program under the oversight of the board to monitor financial arrangements with physicians.
