Partner Michael Callahan will speak on “Economic Credentialing: The Changing Landscape” at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, August 20.

Topics of the conference include:

  • How to survive and add value during difficult times
  • Successful survey preparation
  • Fine tuning initial appointment and reappointment workflow processes, best practice for 2009
  • The changing world of the CMO & med staff professional: new issues raised by employed physicians

This presentation examines the implication of a recent court ruling which struck down a hospital's policy that attempted to restrict medical staff members and their families from having any ownership or economic interest in a competing facility, and also presents two more typical hospital/physician economic scenarios from a hospital and medical staff perspective in terms of identifying areas of legal and political difficulties as well as proposed win-win solutions.
