JACKSON, Miss.- After a recent study by the Mississippi Center for Health Policy, there may be a change in how the University of Mississippi Medical Center is supervised.
The study was released on Tuesday and the document suggests that the current format in which things are handled is faulty due to the frequency in which the College Board is requested to vote on routine contracts. This format slows the medical center down on their abilities.
The report suggests that trustees are not experts on the way an academic medical center should be run, therefore they do not focus enough on strategy, but on the operations.
College Board President Alan Perry told WAPT he is willing to negotiate a change as long as oversight is maintained.
This movement was brought up last year after the College Board voted not to renew the contract of former Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones.
