Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review

 
Back to Practice Groups

Welcome to the Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Practice Group (MSCPR PG). The Practice Group provides a forum for those who represent and advise the individual health care professional, the collective medical or professional staff, and/or the health care entity with issues regarding the organization and operations of medical and professional staffs in health care entities and organizations.

Here are the top four things you can do to make the most of your membership in the MSCPR PG:

  1. Register for a webinar or listen to an archived webinar: Web-based seminars address recent decisions, new regulations, and other substantive matters that are unique to the health care industry and clients. Click here to access a list of upcoming and past webinars sponsored by the MSCPR PG.
  2. Join the Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Topical Community: Discussion includes appointments and credentialing, conducting peer review and quality assurance, providing fair hearings for medical and allied health professional staffs, peer review communications and records confidentiality, and National Practitioner Data Bank querying and reporting. You are automatically enrolled in the community based on your Practice Group enrollment and/or Preference Center selections.
  3. Sign up for an Affinity Group: Available at no additional fee, Affinity Groups facilitate networking and provide educational opportunities for members who share similar professional interests. If you did not select an Affinity Group when you joined AHLA, you can still do so. Simply complete and return this enrollment form or call AHLA's Member Service Center at (202) 833-1100, prompt #2. MSCPR PG members can enroll in the following Affinity Group:
    • Physician/Attorney Affinity Group: Physician-attorneys can provide insight to current health care delivery issues, but also be a springboard for new partnerships heretofore unformed or recognized. With diversity within our own ranks, physician-attorneys can flush out new and past issues and provide new resources for AHLA, its membership, and beyond.
  4. Check out the MSCPR PG Topical Library: This is where you can access the most relevant and recent AHLA publications and resources related to your practice area. It's the hub for AHLA content on AMCTH.

In addition, here are other benefits available to you through the MSCPR PG:

  • News and Analysis: Timely alerts are delivered directly to your inbox—when a new law, regulation, or decision is published, we do the initial legal work and summarize it for you.
  • Great Opportunities for Involvement: The MSCPR PG membership welcomes and encourages members to become active participants by writing, speaking, tweeting, serving as a mentor, and taking on other leadership roles. Visit www.healthlawyers.org/volunteer to view available volunteer opportunities.
  • Collaboration with the National Association Medical Staff Services (NAMSS) to bring valuable insights and practical experiences from medical staff professionals.
  • Task Forces: For those health law topics that cross over several Practice Groups, AHLA has established Task Forces that produce collaborative, substantive resources for the benefit of the sponsoring Practice Groups' members. MSCPR PG members are automatically enrolled in

o   Accountable Care Organization, Payment Innovation, and Health Care Reform Educational Task Force: This group provides members with a variety of information and resources relating to accountable care organizations, integrated care models, and other health care reform initiatives designed to improve quality and lower costs, for better population health.

MSCPR PG will equip you with news and information, and provide you valuable access to other experienced peers.  We hope that your active participation in the MSCPR PG will help you in serving your clients' needs.

 
 

Summaries of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Advisory Opinions are provided by the Advisory Opinions Task Force of the Fraud and Abuse Practice Group. The Task Force aids Practice Group members in keeping abreast of new Advisory Opinions. For each new opinion issued by the OIG, a summary is released via an email alert and posted on several Practice Groups' websites.
