Event Details


The field of provider credentialing and privileging is constantly changing due to the evolution of accreditation standards, state and federal regulations and new legal precedents. Throw into this the many differences in interpretation and you end up with a job that is “challenging” to say the least! This program will provide an overview of current “hot topics” in credentialing and privileging. Due to “hot topics” coming up on a routine basis, the program will be customized to include additional new topics on request of the organization.

If your organization wishes to discuss an issue related to medical services, I am ready!! Let me know what issues are important or relevant to your members and I will customize this presentation to meet your members’ needs. I like to include a lot of interaction and encourage audience discussion and questions during the program. This program can also be structured as an informal networking session.

  • Discuss recent changes in accreditation and regulatory requirements
  • Discuss current “hot” topics in credentialing, recredentialing, and privileging
