Patient Care Governing Congress
All clinical professionals are represented by a department council, whose chair attends Patient Care Governing Congress monthly meetings. Clinical practice decisions are recommended by Functional Councils for approval by PCGC.
Patient Care Leadership Council
The Patient Care Leadership Council serves as a forum for communication and operational accountability of matters
pertinent to patient care delivery within the Health Care System.
The CRMC Executive Councils support the development and implementation of strategic and operational direction to promote the highest quality, compassionate patient care within CRMC.
Accountable Clinical Management (ACM)
The Accountable Clinical Management (ACM) is a model of shared governance to promote meaningful engagement of physician leaders in partnership with hospital administrative leadership. The ACM creates an environment for community physicians to come together and make decisions and provide input in the area of clinical care, operations, finance, new program development, and strategy—all in an effort to improve patient service and quality. Ultimately, the program is based upon certain quality and efficiency goals and the physicians are financially aligned to achieve these goals.
