Credentialing A to Z
Mary Long, CPMSM
Credentialing A to Z is an on-the-go reference packed with easy-to-digest information, Q&As, quizzes, notes, and downloadable forms that will help MSPs gain knowledge about their tasks and the value of their work, enhance team-building, and combat burnout and stress. Author Mary Long, CPMSM, brings in-depth insights, a light touch, and a sense of humor that fellow MSPs will appreciate. This valuable reference guide addresses, defines, and explains your toughest topics in alphabetical order, including:
A: Applications—where all credentialing processes start, and possibly end.
APPs—are advanced practice professionals processed through the medical staff services department or human resources?
B: Bylaws, policies, and rules and regulations—do you know where your medical staff information is?
C: Credentialing—the right information to verify, and the correct way to do it.
G: Governance—an organized medical staff requires governance in order to function. But what does that have to do with credentialing?
M: Meetings—medical staff management in “minutes.”
P: Peer evaluations, FPPE, and OPPE—who’s a peer? Who’s a good peer?
Privileging—the whens and hows of core privileges, disaster privileges, emergency privileges, and temporary privileges of all stripes.
R: Reappointment—building and sticking to a cycle.
Red flags—spotting them, stopping them, and getting answers.
V: Verification—the querying process, the organizations, and the information they provide.
X, Y, and Z: Xenon, yag lasers, and zero data (mastering medical terminology—no, CABG isn’t “cabbage”)
Credentialing A to Z provides new MSPs and credentialing coordinators on-the-job spot training that will build and test their knowledge in a fun way before they’re put to the test with less-fun credentialing challenges (such as surveys). All quizzes, Q&As, and other forms are downloadable and customizable, allowing MSPs to tailor them to their programs.
