Boards and committees in healthcare providers have faced hard challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the healthcare board’s major responsibilities was to monitor organizational performance, and exercise accountability for results especially in the areas of mission effectiveness, financial supervision , strategic direction, quality, and patient experience.
Healthcare boards and committees are required to adopt ambitious initiatives in transforming their board and committees operations. They have to form different committees and workgroups to handle the different areas in the healthcare institutions such as:
- Hospital committees related to medical supplies, vaccine, and medication
- Detectors workgroups
- Emergency operation
- Nurses and different medical staff
- Medical laboratories and diagnosis
Healthcare boards and committees are also faced with challenges to comply with regulations and accreditation requirements, and follow-up on specific cases and issues related to the quality of services.
