Registration is now open for the 2016 Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) Medical Staff Conference, set for October 27 at the Embassy Suites SFO (Gateway) Hotel in South San Francisco. This event will deliver the information, solutions and best practices that physicians need to successfully lead their medical staffs.
The conference will tackle some of the difficult decisions that face medical staffs, such as credentialing, granting privileges and proctoring practitioners for remote technology (telemedicine), and privileging policies for the new technology. Through examples and discussion, faculty will demonstrate how medical staffs can best position themselves to modernize quality improvement and update peer review systems.
The conference will also provide an update on Joint Commission standards, including a discussion about the standards that are most often found noncompliant.
Ashby Wolfe, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Region IX, will discuss CMS initiatives related to patient safety, quality reporting and electronic health record usage.
AMA PRA Category 1 creditTM has been applied for and approval is pending. The conference has been approved for continuing education credit from the National Association Medical Staff Services.
If you are a physician, hospital leader, medical staff director, credentialing specialist or quality improvement professional, you will want to attend this one-day course that addresses the critical challenges facing your medical staff.
