Corporate Governance / Structure


atom Alliance is governed by Qsource’s Board of Directors. Qsource is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Tennessee corporation with up to a 15-member Board of Directors representing various elements of the healthcare industry, academia and business expertise. Board membership also includes Medicare consumer representation.

Qsource is committed to the highest standards for business practices, governance and public accountability. Our Board provides careful financial and strategic oversight of Qsource’s work to improve and transform the quality of healthcare, and our Corporate Leadership embraces recognized quality guidelines in Management Processes and Systems.

The Qsource Board of Directors is comprised of members elected to 3-year terms. Election results are announced at the Board’s annual meeting. Appointments to the Board can be made by the Directors, only in the event of a midterm vacancy and only to fill the seat until the end of the term. Directors may serve for up to six years. The six year limit may be extended by the Board, for no more than three members and no more than three additional years, upon the recommendation of the Governance Committee. Board compensation is set by an independent, authorized body and is $125.00 per hour.

In supporting greater transparency in the healthcare industry, as well as our own achievements contributing to measurable improvement in quality healthcare, Qsource and our Board adhere to the Qsource Code of Business Conduct.
