MHA Service Corporation Board, Human Resources Committee Meet

Posted on February 19, 2021

At its Feb. 11 meeting, the MHA Service Corporation (MHASC) Board of Directors discussed and evaluated nondues revenue sources for the MHASC during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond to provide financial support to the MHA. In the coming year, the performance of current services will be reviewed for renewals, and priorities for new initiatives will be considered.

The board discussed how best to position the association’s enhanced data collection strategy to address recent federal provisions calling for the funding and establishment of statewide all-payer claims databases (APCDs). The MHA Board of Trustees plans to form a subcommittee with content expertise to advise the association on relevant considerations and provide the MHA Board of Trustees with recommendations on how best to use APCDs. The board also recognized the MHA Unemployment Compensation Program for managing an unprecedented number of pandemic-related unemployment claims with an aggressive, comprehensive and consultative approach.

The MHASC Human Resources (HR) Committee met Feb. 16 to discuss current HR leadership priorities and review its role in guiding workforce initiatives related to resources, education, data, staff development and more. The committee addressed priorities including COVID-19 vaccination coordination, staffing shortages, virtual work, diversity, unconscious bias and grief leadership/resilience resources. The committee further discussed developing an MHA HR Council as a resource for healthcare professionals.

The board and HR Committee received a report from MHA endorsed business partner HealthEquity outlining a cohesive, integrated benefits program designed to provide employees with resources to maximize their health savings account and flexible spending account benefits. HealthEquity will provide more information in a member webinar from 3:30 to 4 p.m. EST March 3, and members may contact Rob Wood at the MHA to register.

The MHASC provides critical support to the MHA in the form of nondues revenue through its Endorsed Business Partner program, Data Services and Unemployment Compensation Program. Visit the MHA Business Services webpage to learn more about available member resources.
