New Mexico Board of Directors

HealthInsight New Mexico is an Albuquerque-based, not-for-profit, physician-sponsored organization. Its up-to-15-member Board of Directors includes statewide representation from a variety of health care settings/disciplines as well as non-health care backgrounds. The Board endeavors to maintain an equal representation of four key stakeholder groups in the health care communities it serves on the corporation's Board of Directors: (1) providers (including physicians) and provider organizations; (2) payor organizations; (3) employers and other health care purchasers; and (4) public entities, patients or patient representatives, consumer representatives and/or consumer advocacy organizations.

At a minimum, two directors shall be patient/consumer representatives and not: (a) a practicing or retired physician; or (b) a governing body member, officer, partner, 5 percent or more owner, or managing employee in a health care facility or association of health care facilities in New Mexico. At least one consumer director shall be a Medicare beneficiary. The composition of the Board of Directors shall reflect the corporation's continuing commitment to racial, ethnic, gender and professional diversity. 

There shall be as many as 15 elected directors on the board, as well as certain designated directors who shall serve ex officio. HealthInsight's chief executive officer shall serve as an ex officio director of the corporation with voting rights. The current chief executives (or their appointed designees) of the New Mexico Hospital Association, New Mexico Medical Society, New Mexico Association for Home and Hospice Care and New Mexico Long Term Care Association shall be invited to serve as ex officio directors of the corporation. Renewed annually, invited ex officio board members shall be allowed to serve during their full tenure as executive officers/directors of their respective associations and their terms on the board shall not be term-limited. With the exception of the president/CEO of HealthInsight, no ex officio shall also be an employee of the corporation. Two directors, generally the chair and vice chair, sit on the HealthInsight Management Corporation Board of Directors.

Elected Directors

Elected directors shall hold office from the close of the annual meeting for a term of up to three years, or until their successors have been elected and qualified. Directors shall be classified with respect to the time for which they shall hold office by dividing them into three classes, each class to consist of, as nearly as possible, an equal number of elected directors. The elected directors of the first, second and third class shall hold office for an initial term of up to three years.

Ex Officio Directors

 Ex officio directors or their current designees shall be eligible to serve during their full tenure as executive officers/directors of their respective organizations.

Length of Service Cap

Trustees are limited to six years (two terms) of consecutive service on the board. However, in order to maintain continuity, the board may elect to allow a third term of service for up to three board members, typically those holding officer positions. No elected board member may exceed nine consecutive years of service.

The terms of all elected directors shall be staggered. All reasonable effort will be made to maintain three-year terms and stagger the start and ending of the terms for each class of directors to maintain continuity for the board. Any elected directors who have served for two consecutive full terms shall be ineligible for re-election, unless the elected director serves in an officer capacity, in which case his or her term may be extended up to one additional term for a total of three full terms. Any elected officer of the board who has served for three consecutive terms shall be ineligible for re-election. In no case shall an elected director serve more than nine consecutive years on the board.

Board Appointments

The terms of service appointments to the board generally begin in May with the board's annual meeting. However, new appointments may also be recommended by the Nominating Committee and approved by the full board when needed to fill vacancies.

Recruitment

The timing of board member appointments is planned to stagger the exit of existing members and the recruitment and entry of new members. Since terms of service are for two three-year terms, generally there will be two to three board members elected or re-elected each year.

Resignation

A Director may resign at any time by filing a written resignation with the chair or the secretary-treasurer of the corporation. Failure of a director to attend at least 50 percent of the board meetings in a calendar year may be deemed to be a resignation by the director.
