The principal governing committee of the SCC is the Board of Directors (BOD), which includes representatives from various stakeholders from the SCC partnerships. In addition, the BOD will maintain:
- Seven sub-committees to provide guidance in the following areas: (i) Clinical; (ii) Finance; (iii) Community Needs Assessment and Outreach; (iv) Health Information Technology and Biomedical Informatics; (v) Workforce; (vi) Compliance; and (vii) Audit.
- Eleven individual Project Committees to represent each DSRIP project chosen by the PPS. These workgroups were constituted in September 2014 and have continued to evolve with new members joining.
- The Project Advisory Committee (PAC), which was formed in August 2014, is open to anyone selected as a representative by their PPS partner entity.
All three of these groups have been established. The Suffolk Care Collaborative takes an inclusive approach to participation – there will be multiple opportunities for partner entities to participate in various governance forums.
