Governance & Structure:

VHAN governance structure stems from our Board of Directors, which is composed of clinical and administrative representatives from across our Affiliate community. Our Committees and Councils are tasked with responsibilities such as clinical improvement; credentialling, finance, contracts management, and data governance; physician leadership; and addressing regional and ad hoc needs. Physician representation is key to the work of every Board Committee.

Because we strive to continuously improve clinical performance across our Affiliate practices while incorporating regional input into our clinical network strategies, we maintain a Clinical Performance Committee with regular feedback from our regional Clinical Operating Leadership Teams, Regional Medical Directors and Network Operations Directors, and Physician Leadership Council.
