We are currently evaluating the work flow for our Department Chiefs, and we are looking for examples of how other facilities are managing this to see if there are ways to make our processes more efficient and decrease the amount of time Department Chairs are spending on their various functions. Some specific functions we are interested in are as follows:
• Credentialing/Privileging File Review – As part of your response, please indicate if the files are being reviewed electronically through iObserver, or if the MSO staff is printing parts of the credential file for review.
• Code of Conduct/Behavior Issues
If your Department Chiefs are not directly involved with the above listed functions, please provide a description of who is performing each function and how it is being managed. If these processes are performed by other medical staff members, are they elected or appointed positions (Vice Chiefs, Section Chiefs, Credentials Committee members, CMO, etc).
I thank you in advance for your time and attention to my request!
