Recent changes to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and Joint Commission standard MS.01.01.01 will require many hospitals to make substantial revisions to their current medical staff governance documents by March 31, 2011. Although the effective date is still over seven months away, the amendment of medical staff governance documents can be a complex process and hospitals and medical staffs should address necessary changes as soon as possible.
To help you understand and comply with these new requirements, Foley attorneys Michael M. Biehl and Maureen F. Kwiecinski will:
- Discuss the changes required by the newly revised Joint Commission standard MS.01.01.01 and proposed changes to the Medicare CoPs
- Identify strategies for engaging interested parties, developing fully compliant documents, and guiding documents through the amendment and approval process
- Discuss potential pitfalls and mechanisms for minimizing administrative burdens and conflict
