A Comprehensive Guide to Credentialing and Peer Review (Pre-Conference Workshop)
Peer review. CMS and the accreditation organizations require it, and misconceptions about the process abound. Learn how to perform peer review correctly and get answers to common questions from two Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care surveyors and an attorney who specializes in credentialing and peer review. Case studies will be discussed.
Wednesday, May 15, 1:00 pm-5:00 pm
Leadership 101 & 201
Some have worked toward a leadership position their entire career while others are selected without any prior preparation. Either way, your ASC needs to train new leaders and make certain they are well-informed and prepared to meet all applicable federal regulatory requirements as well as the standards from the accrediting organizations. Where do you start? This presentation will discuss what new ASC leaders need to know about compliance and where they can go to find the information they need.
Friday, May 16, 8:00 am-9:30 am
Succession Planning for ASC Administrators (Advanced Session)
Have you trained your successor? If something happened to you tomorrow, could someone step in and immediately take over in a seamless transition? Or, are you ready to retire but have no idea how to hire, promote or train someone who can take over your position without skipping a beat? You hold critical knowledge about your ASC’s culture and history, and someone else needs to know this information. Look carefully at practical ways to prepare for your departure, whether its timing is planned or not.
Friday, May 16, 2:00 pm-3:30 pm
