The MHA Service Corporation (MHASC) board focused on supporting MHA Strategic Action Plan priorities at the Oct. 13 planning session including addressing financial viability, workforce restoration & wellbeing, behavioral health improvements, health equity and more. The board considered strategies to support trends of redesigning patient care through innovation, technology and workforce partnerships. In these areas, the board stressed the importance of focusing on the mission of healthcare organizations to advance the health of patients and communities and explaining the challenges healthcare providers face in achieving this mission with specific examples.
The MHASC board engaged in a robust discussion about workforce challenges and services to assist MHA members. MHASC leadership will continue to identify and enhance new endorsed business partners with programs and services that promote and strengthen association workforce priorities including violence prevention, coaching/development, well-being, recruitment, retention, temporary/permanent staffing and redesigning care.
In addition, the MHASC Board passed a resolution during the meeting that places the board in alignment with the commitment made by the MHA Board of Trustees during their Nov. 4, 2020 Board Meeting to lead by example in addressing systemic racism and health inequities in our communities. The MHASC board also celebrated the continuing expansion of the MHA Unemployment Compensation Program into other states to offer high-quality human resources support in this area to members and other clients.
The MHASC provides critical support to the MHA in the form of nondues revenue through its Data Services, Unemployment Compensation Program and Endorsed Business Partner program to address workforce, financial and other operational needs.
