Upcoming Webinar: Board Oversight of Credentialing: More Challenging Than Ever!

April 24, 2018  |  2:00–3:00 p.m. Eastern Time/11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. Pacific Time
Presented by Todd Sagin, M.D., J.D., Sagin Healthcare Consulting, LLC

Important update regarding continuing education credits:  Starting in 2018, each person who  wishes to receive a CE certificate for  participating in this Webinar must register individually rather than as part of a group, must log in to the Webinar using their name, and must remain logged into the Webinar for the entire duration of the one-hour program. 

The healthcare board is responsible for assuring that only competent practitioners are granted privileges to work clinically in its facilities. While the board may rely heavily on medical staff input to assess practitioner suitability for privileges, only the board can appoint to the medical staff. This is one of the most important patient safety activities a healthcare organization can undertake. This Webinar will address how a board can carry out this role effectively without simply being a “rubber-stamp” to medical staff recommendations. It will also look at tactics to assure it performs appropriate oversight of credentialing processes and procedures.

Registration will open soon.
