Medical Staff Credentialing Due Diligence: Avoid Negligence and Minimize Liability


Understand the basics of physician credentialing and negligent credentialing claims so employees can stay compliant.

Physicians around the country submit applications for staff privileges and staff re-appointment on a routine basis. The decisions by healthcare institutions either granting or denying those applications can lead to substantial liability concerns. Many in institutional leadership--with both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds--may underestimate the importance of a deliberate, consistent, and rule compliant process to minimize liability. This topic helps those involved with the credentialing process to understand the basics of physician credentialing, negligent credentialing claims, physician claims for denied privileges, and tools for limiting and minimizing liability associated with credentialing decisions. It is critical for medical professionals to understand and apply these lessons when faced with credentialing decisions.
