Physicians, Hospitals Benefit from Reentry Programs
Grace says these reports are one of the benefits medical staffs receive when working with a program such as CPEP rather than doing the legwork themselves. “[It’s] really important for a hospital credentialing office to feel like they understand how things are going and where they are for the physician without having to do the legwork themselves,” she says.
Wegleitner says it’s important for medical staffs to receive evidence showing a practitioner’s competency rather than a non-detailed verdict from an outside reentry program stating that the practitioner is ready to hold the requested privileges. “If I were a medical executive committee leader, I certainly wouldn’t trust that,” she says about the generic report.
