Documenting Provider Competency

Event Details


One of the biggest challenges medical staffs face is evaluating the competency of providers. It is difficult, or sometimes impossible, to acquire useful competency data. The increased focus on quality by accrediting organizations, the government, and the public, emphasizes the need for continual monitoring of the quality of services provided as well as having a strong privileging system. The resources for this program include many forms, policies, and procedures that can be used by the participants.

  • Recognize the importance of acquiring evidence to document competency
  • Develop tools and processes for documenting competency
  • Discuss the CMS and Joint Commission requirements for privileging and documenting competency including focused and ongoing professional practice evaluation
  • Recognize processes for developing quality indicators
