WEBCAST ON CD OR ON-DEMAND
Sponsored by: The 14th Annual Credentialing Resource Center SymposiumPresented on Wednesday, February 9, 2011
How do you know whether specific criteria are needed for a new procedure or technology? How do you create those criteria?
This 90-minute program will guide hospitals and ambulatory care centers through the decision-making process for analyzing privileging requests for new procedures and new technology. You will learn a streamlined, step-by-step approach to reduce the frustrations of developing privileging criteria, including where to find appropriate information on which to base your decisions. In addition, you will understand the nuances of developing a criteria-based privileging system and effectively managing cross-specialty disputes by creating equivalent criteria.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Define CMS’ privileging requirements, as well as those established by accrediting bodies
- Summarize the decision-making process needed for analyzing requests for new procedures and new technology
- Recognize key elements and options to include in criteria development
- Identify information sources to aid in criteria development
Take a look at the agenda:
