Tackle the Credentialing Challenges in Your ASC

September 2, 2014

Failure to credential your ASC's physicians properly can put your patients at risk, cause your facility to fall out of compliance with accreditation and Medicare certification requirements, and lead to improper billing. Learn how to keep your patients and ASC out of danger during ASCA's next webinar "Physician Credentialing in Your ASC." The program will be offered on Tuesday, September 9, at 1:00 pm ET.

Cindy Young, RN, CASC, administrative director of the Surgery Center of Farmington (Mo.), will provide a detailed explanation of the physician credentialing process that will help ensure your ASC's credentialing program operates efficiently and complies with the regulatory standards that apply.

Topics she will discuss include:

  • Core principles of a credentialing program

  • Medicare's credentialing requirements, and how to meet them

  • Recredentialing process, and how it differs from the credentialing process

  • Strategies for success

  • Potential obstacles and pitfalls

Whether you're a physician credentialing beginner or in need of a refresher course on establishing a compliant credentialing program in your ASC, this is a webinar you won't want to miss.
