Qsource-Arkansas Board of Directors

Our affiliate, Qsource-Arkansas, is a separate legal entity governed by its own Board of Directors, but follows the same guidelines/structure and management practices described for Qsource.

A local Board of Directors governs Qsource-Arkansas. Board members are elected by the current Qsource-Arkansas board and reflect Arkansas’ diverse population. Members include healthcare, accounting, and consumers representatives.

The board provides careful strategic oversight of Qsource-Arkansas’ work to improve and transform the quality of healthcare. We are committed to the highest standards for business practices, governance and public accountability. The Qsource-Arkansas Board supports greater transparency in the healthcare system, as well as our own achievements in contributing to measurable improvement in quality healthcare.

Number of members: Not more than 11, not more than four physician directors, and not more than 9 consumer representatives, at least one of who is a Medicare beneficiary.

Length of Appointment: 3-year term

When appointments are made: Directors are elected by the current board members. Election Results are announced at the annual meeting of the organization. Mid-term appointments to the Board can be made only in the event of a mid-term vacancy to fill the seat until the end of the term.
