Are you puzzled over Joint Commission HR 1.20?

Hospitals have traditionally credentialed and privileged, through the medical staff process, all allied health professionals (AHP) who are employed by or connected with the medical staff. Now, The Joint Commission has defined an explicit group of practitioners, including PAs, NPs, CRNAs, and nurse midwives, who must continue to be credentialed and privileged, while the rest must be credentialed according to HR standards.

What about the clinical assistants brought in by LIPs?

The Joint Commission requirements regarding licensed independent practitioners (LIP) who bring their employees into the organization are at the crux of the AHP conundrum. These dependent healthcare professionals often provide the same services as employees of the organization, and must be authorized and have their competency addressed in an equivalent manner. But does the MSO know the HR standards for compliance?

You could be doing all of the credentialing work but still be out of compliance.

MSPs may do all of the work to credential these clinical assistants yet still fail to meet The Joint Commission's new standards to ensure that practitioners brought into the hospital by LIPs are assessed at a level commensurate to those individuals employed by the hospital. Learn how your organization can best authorize nonprivileged practitioners and achieve compliance, with Solving the AHP Conundrum: How to Comply with HR Standards Related to Nonprivileged Practitioners.

Discover cutting-edge methods for managing the shift to HR processes!

This book and CD-ROM set offers a blueprint for hospitals to transition, into the HR authorization path, all of the clinical assistants who no longer need to be credentialed and privileged by the medical staff.

Transform privileging methods into competency evaluations.

This resource includes adaptable versions of job descriptions, as well as competence assessment forms, which you can immediately put to use at your facility.

You'll learn how to:

- Identify which individuals belong in the medical staff privileging process and which should be transitioned to the HR authorization process
- Develop and implement a transition plan that is equitable and manageable for both the MSO and HR
- Develop nomenclature for the organization that is more descriptive than the terminology used today
- Ensure that safety and quality of care are upheld when your hospital chooses to transition practitioner authorization to HR

Create a workable plan!

This practical, easy-to-use guide will help MSPs, in collaboration with their HR coworkers, create a workable plan for the transition.

Use a proven blueprint for HR success.

You can speed up and smooth out the changeover by following the step-by-step methodology set out in this book.

Maintain safety and quality standards at all times.

This book offers a plan to ensure that there is no breach of established safety mechanisms. It covers issues surrounding health screening, background checks, and more, to ensure that patient safety and quality of care is not compromised.
