Health care governance has attracted the attention of a number of regulatory and private bodies, including the IRS, HHS, OIG, Bond Rating Agencies, The Joint Commission and state agencies. There is a growing body of research that links good governance to organizational performance and tax-exempt compliance. Boards are being challenged to "raise the bar" and be more accountable to the public.
