Those who attended the Governance Leadership Summit hosted by the New Hampshire Hospital Association, the Foundation for Healthy Communities and the New England Alliance for Health (NEAH) learned that the transformation of the health care system is upon us, bringing change, challenge, and uncertainty.

While we may not know what the post-transformation environment will bring, we do know the transition period will be fraught with tension, market and organizational turbulence, and economic risk. A board's response to these challenges will determine the future of their organization. This presentation outlined the challenges and opportunities confronting health care organizations and their leaders and discussed practical strategies to keep ahead of the demanding change curve.

These points were driven home by presenter Jamie Orlikoff, President of Orlikoff & Associates, Inc., and to perpetuate the benefits of that Governance Leadership Summit, the NHHA, FHC and NEAH are pleased to provide links to the following documents:

We hope these materials will help you chart the course for the future of your organization, and we look forward to seeing you at the next Governance Leadership Summit.
