Description: 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 processesThis 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.Keep up with the changes.The 2007 Joint Commission Standards represent a major change in the way that MSOs--and now HR--must measure and monitor a large number of non-physician practitioners providing care and services to patients in their facilities.
