The world of medical staff peer review and hospital compliance review are beginning to intersect. The purpose of this webinar is to identify the differences between the two processes in order to help everyone better understand what needs to be shared, and when, to ensure that both sides can do their job effectively.

What You Will Learn:

At the end of these presentations, participants will be able to:

  • Identify when a compliance review is necessary
  • Identify when a medical staff quality review is necessary
  • Develop a plan that provides appropriate guidance for the Quality Department in addressing these two critically important issues
