• ANHA LTC Preparedness Toolkit

    Monday May 6, 2019

    The Alabama Long Term Care (LTC) Preparedness Toolkit was developed to assist with emergency preparedness planning for this specialized health care population. LTC facilities, as they are referred to in the toolkit, include nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities. This toolkit was originally created by the Minnesota Dept. of Health, Care Providers of Minnesota, Aging Services of Minnesota, and regional representation from the Health Care Preparedness Program who developed this tool to assist LTC facilities in emergency preparedness. The toolkit was revised with permission by members of the Alabama Nursing Home Association to assist Alabama facilities in preparing for disasters.

  • Health System Boards and Cultures that Support Effective Enterprise Risk Management

    Wednesday June 5, 2019

    The common law and regulatory climates of North American health systems have been shaped by an Anglo-Saxon heritage regarding the role of the corporation. This view of the corporation has, in turn, shaped the role and responsibilities of corporate bards as they perform certain key fiduciary duties wisely. At the 2018 Cayman Captive Forum, our session on governance trends and best practices for risk management sought to position the role of boards to not so much be experts in risk management, but to be enablers of a superior risk management culture that supports talented executives and risk management professionals to master and continuously enhance the use of modern Enterprise Risk management principles, policies and practices.

    This paper has been modified from discussions at the recent Cayman Captive Forum organized by the Insurance Managers Association of Cayman (MAC). Requests at the Forum for materials that might help stimulate health systems boards to enhance the effectiveness of their enterprise risk management encouraged the authors to assemble and share this collection of ideas and insights about governing modern risk management strategies and structures.
