As a medical staff services professional (MSP), compliance officer, risk manager, or physician executive, your job is vitally important. You are working in a rapidly evolving and expanding new era of compliance. Laws, regulations, and new court decisions that affect the medical staff are increasing in both number and complexity.
Plaintiffs attorneys examine the credentialing and privileging process more closely these days. How will this effect you and your processes? It is absolutely necessary for you to understand the legal system as it relates to healthcare, and particularly medical staff compliance.
