Credentialing Resource Center wants to know what your organization’s average turnaround time is for medical staff applications. How long does it take for your medical staff services department or credentialing verification organization to process the application? How long does it take for the application to be reviewed by appropriate medical staff leaders and committees?

One of the ways medical staffs can resolve privileging disputes between departments is to hold a meeting to discuss the issue. This can be a meeting where the medical executive committee listens to both departments presenting their cases, or it can take another format that is more inline with your medical staff’s culture.

It can be challenging for medical staffs to address issues that don’t have clear, black and white answers. For example, how would your medical staff respond to a practitioner who has excellent clinical skills but exhibits disruptive behavior? What if your medical staff had worked hard to recruit a practitioner, only to find out shortly thereafter that he had relapsed into chemical dependency? Obviously there are some clear regulatory standards that must be followed in these instances, but there are also ethical issues and concerns that each medical staff must address individually.
