Overview: Joint Commission standards set a high bar for hospital medical staff bylaws. Since the 2011 changes to MS 01.01.01, bylaws must meet 37 elements of performance including hearing provisions, credentialing requirements, department director duties and more. But don’t stop there-additional requirements are scattered through other Joint Commission standards. Each standard, element of performance and their quirks will be addressed and means of compliance explored.
Why should you Attend: Joint Commission accreditation, sought by the overwhelming majority of American hospitals, hinges upon compliance with the Standards and their Elements of Performance set forth in the Joint Commission Accreditation Manual for Hospitals. Some of the most complex, detailed standards involve medical staff bylaws provisions and processes. Federal legal requirements change frequently in ways that unexpectedly affect these Joint Commission standards. This webinar addresses the most up -to-date Joint Commission requirements and industry best practices for medical staff bylaws compliance.
