HORTY SPRINGER: PEER REVIEW BEST PRACTICES WITH PAUL VERARDI – THE DEEP DIVE - PART 2
Part 2 — Significantly Enhance Your Clinical Review Process, Empower Your Case Reviewers with Training and Tools (It Is an Acquired Skill!), and Promote Education for All
After 30 years of working in the trenches with physician and hospital leaders, and after conducting innumerable onsite training sessions and national courses, HortySpringer’s Paul Verardi has now created a series of “on demand” training educational courses for physician leaders and hospitals.
This series is designed to be viewed as a whole, with the sessions being like gears in a watch. But it has also been developed so that if you only need assistance with several aspects of this complex area, each individual session delivers on our commitment to provide you with substantive, concrete guidance and to not waste one single minute of your time – i.e., the “no fluff” rule!
This course was designed for hospital administrators, physicians and clinicians who need to be better informed about how to manage and possibly improve their overall performance.
Upon completion of this audio conference, participants will be able to:
- Describe the legal, regulatory, and human costs of failing to do clinical “peer review” in an appropriate manner.
- Implement a step-by-step “best practice” review process for addressing clinical concerns in a consistent, effective, and constructive manner.
- Revise Medical Staff Bylaws and policies to reflect the modified role of a Medical Executive Committee in modern PPE activities.
- Identify the several different options for obtaining specialty expertise in the review of a clinical concern and select the option that best fits a particular Medical Staff’s culture.
- Describe the various legal protections that are available for Clinical Specialty Reviewers and incorporate language in Medical Staff Bylaws and application forms that strengthens those protections.
- Utilize a carefully drafted Case Review Form to promote the appropriate assessment of clinical issues and concerns, the identification of educational lessons learned, and the identification of system issues that also impact patient outcomes.
There is no educational content to this course. This site is designed to supplement training that has already occurred, to administer the post-test, collect CME evaluations, and issue credit.
