Learn what this means for your hospital from QMCG Executive Director Catherine Ballard in this video from Bricker & Eckler’s annual Top 10 Hot Topics in Health Care Law for 2014.

Q:

Is the process of credentialing operating room vendors difficult?

Q-Tip:

It’s not as difficult as you may think. Inventory those who are coming into patient care areas (i.e., who are not on staff nor employed). Next, find out who invited and who is monitoring said individual. See if the entity the individual is representing has credentialing information and ask for it. Remember, the hospital’s governing body has the right and obligation to limit who is providing and/or directing patient care in its facility. Remember that other requirements – such as confidentiality assurances – will also need consideration.
