Medical Staff Bylaws: Impact of Recent Regulatory Changes and Best Practices
Complying With CMS and Updating Hospital Governance Documents
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will prepare healthcare counsel to advise and guide healthcare providers, medical staffs and hospitals working towards medical staff bylaws compliance with the Joint Commission standards, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation, the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) standards, and other applicable federal and state laws.
- CMS/Joint Commission medical staff standards
- New National Practitioner Guidebook impact on bylaw
- Best practices
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are some example bylaw provisions to consider?
- What potential pitfalls could be encountered in amending and approving revised bylaws—and what strategies can hospitals employ to overcome them?
- What are some ways to limit the need for hearings?
