If you can get a good hospital board together, you can change the world. Trustees receive no pay and put in lots of time. They do it because they value a good hospital in the community. It is a pure motive from the heart.

We are pleased to announce our partnership with MDR™ as they work closely with a broad array of "Best Practice" organizations to help drive resources and solutions to meet the needs of healthcare providers.

HOW BEST ON BOARD WORKS

Best on Board offers a rewarding and easy-to-use governance education and certification process that provides the essential, specialized knowledge and skills needed to govern this critical community resource.

Best on Board offers its educational programs in an online format which includes quizzes and certification by Best on Board. Courses are content-rich, engaging and are designed with adult learning styles and needs in mind.

The online format can be adapted to a classroom setting with a facilitator.
Hospitals and healthcare organizations need knowledgeable, skilled and engaged boards to address the challenges that face them. To get the “best on board” they must not only seek those trustees who are the most knowledgeable and competent to serve, but also must be willing to support them in the ongoing learning and development so essential to true governance.
With the additional benefit of certification (credentialing) as a trustee, this course is a must. I recommend it highly.

Courses

Best on Board’s Essentials of Healthcare Governance course series strengthens the ability of current and prospective trustees and leaders to serve on a healthcare organization governing board.

Best on Board also offers an advanced-level course series, The Quality Imperative, for participants who want to deepen their understanding of board responsibilities in this critical aspect of their organization's service.

MISSION & VISION

Best on Board’s Vision is to increase the confidence and competence of healthcare trustees through education, testing and certification.

Best on Board’s Mission is to increase the quality of healthcare governance through:
Designing and delivering comprehensive governance education
Partnering with hospital/healthcare associations to deliver education, testing and certification to their members
Partnering with other organizations with a commitment to improving healthcare governance
Assisting with identifying incentives to help healthcare organizations with the cost of trustee certification

INSIGHT

Because nurses have the most contact with patients, families and physicians, nurses have in-depth knowledge of healthcare delivery that could prove valuable to a board of trustees on relevant issues.
