Multifaceted Engagement Leads to Credentialing, Privileging, and Bylaws Improvements
The Chief Executive Officer/General Counsel and Credentials Chair of a 25-bed, physician-owned surgical hospital in the Midwest both attended one of The Greeley Company’s national seminars, The Credentialing Solution, in San Diego in early 2015. They were impressed with the content of the seminar and followed up with The Greeley Company about conducting a gap analysis between their existing processes and leading practices, with the goal of making improvements based on Greeley methodologies.
During a subsequent scoping call to discuss the consulting engagement with Greeley, the organization:
- Described their concerns around the process for appointment and reappointment and desire for Greeley to help make it more thorough and effective and incorporate best practices.
- Explained that they currently utilize a laundry list privileging model and would like assistance on how to transition to core privileging.
- Requested that Greeley assist with the development of policies to guide medical staff leaders in handling low- and no-volume practitioners and the aging practitioner.
- Discussed their need for an off-site bylaws review.
The Greeley Company brought to the project a unique combination of capabilities and helped the organization to achieve compliance, mitigate risk, and design a highly effective MSSD and credentialing/privileging process.
