Negligent Credentialing Webinar

Healthcare entities are responsible for developing credentialing processes for physicians and physician extenders who practice in the hospital and managed care settings. These processes are developed to protect patients from harm. But when physicians are engaged in a medical malpractice lawsuit, the healthcare entity may also be included under the pretense of negligent credentialing.

This webinar provides an overview of a pre-application, initial application/credentialing and reappointment/re-credentialing processes along with the integration of FPPE and OPPE quality criteria. The processes include aspects of primary source verifications, applicant responsibility and how to identify potential risk management issues for review by various Committees and Board approval entities.
