Agenda

Credentialing: What Is It and Why Do It?
Kathy Matzka, CPMSM, CPCS, FMSP; 60 minutes
One of the highest risk procedures in any healthcare organization is not a medical procedure itself; it is credentialing. Credentialing protects patients from incompetent practitioners. Medical staff professionals and medical staff  leaders are charged with ensuring their organization has a solid credentialing process. Yet, they are often not given the training they need to undertake this important task. In this course, expert Kathy Matzka, CPMSM, CPCS, FMSP, provides an introductory look at what credentialing is, what steps a credentialing process should include, and what everyone’s role is in credentialing. Feel confident that your new medical staff professionals and medical staff leaders will fully understand what credentialing entails after taking this course.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the key steps in the credentialing process for both initial credentialing and recredentialing
  • Identify essential elements to be verified and appropriate verification sources
  • Discuss “red flags” and how to identify them
  • Determine appropriate mechanisms for following up with verification sources
  • Describe expedited credentialing and determine when it is acceptable to use such a process
  • Define the roles and responsibilities of each person/committee participating in the credentialing process 

The Concept of Privileging
Kathy Matzka, CPMSM, CPCS, FMSP; 60 minutes

This course will explain the basics of peer review: what it is, why it is important, which standards govern peer review, and how to make the organizational changes needed to implement effective peer review and performance monitoring. Feel confident that your new medical staff professionals and medical staff leaders will fully understand what peer review entails after taking this course.
