Title: A Point-Counterpoint Discussion on Peer Review

A point counterpoint discussion of the most current issues in credentialing and peer review featuring Michael Cassidy representing the physician perspective, Shirley Morrigan representing the hospital perspective, and Jim Boswell as the moderator. Topics will include:

  • How hospitals are changing their medical staff bylaws in the wake of Poliner;
  • Strategies for hospitals and physicians to negotiate sticky physician-hospital disputes short of a hearing and a databank report;
  • To what extent are economic credentialing and use of exclusive contracts to bar physicians a set-up for a Poliner outcome;
  • Even after Poliner, is the bar still too high for physicians to prove an abuse of the peer review process?
