The California Medical Association (CMA) is hosting a webinar on Thursday, May 21, 2020, to look at the most significant waivers of state and federal laws during the COVID-19 public health emergency, and how these changes have impacted care delivery. The one-hour webinar—COVID-19 Flexibilities for Medical Staffs and Hospital-Based Physicians—is offered free of charge to all interested parties as part of CMA’s ongoing support for physicians during the public health emergency.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal and state governments have waived laws and regulations to increase flexibility for hospitals and other health facilities faced with significant uncertainty regarding workforce and patient flow. Medical staffs and physicians have been impacted by changes ranging from broad suspension of hospital licensing requirements to managing credentialing and telehealth.
The webinar will also provide an overview of new CMA resources available to assist medical staffs in navigating these waivers.
As with all webinars, if you are unable to attend the live events, they will be available for on-demand viewing at cmadocs.org/webinars. Recently recorded webinars include
