A National Emergency has been declared for COVID-19. The job of a medical staff professional is changing daily as are requirements from the federal government. Providing care to patients and responding to this pandemic is the focus of your medical staff office and the entire healthcare system right now. VerityStream is here to support you in every way we can. Here are a few tips and few resources you can take advantage of right from your home office.
Telemedicine Privileging Tips:
- Grant telemedicine privileges without medical staff membership
- Process all telemedicine providers as a group, rather than individually
- It is not necessary to maintain individual files for each provider.
- Manage these telehealth providers electronically and run the verification queries (such as NPDB and state licensure) through your credentialing software
- Communicate to patient care staff of what services telemedicine providers have been granted
