Credentialing and Privileging
 CoPs
Role of other practitioners on the Medical Staff: We have
broadened the concept of “medical staff” and have allowed
hospitals the flexibility to include other practitioners as eligible
candidates for the medical staff with hospital privileges to
practice in the hospital in accordance with State law. All
practitioners will function under the rules of the medical staff.
This change will clearly permit hospitals to allow other
practitioners (e.g. APRNs, PAs, pharmacists) to perform all
functions within their scope of practice. We have required that
the medical staff must examine the credentials of all eligible
candidates (as defined by the governing body) and then make
recommendations for privileges and medical staff membership
to the governing body.

– Focused Professional Practice Evaluation

Purpose
 Align competency expectations to those used by ACGME
training programs
 OPPE
– Require organizations to review performance data for all
practitioners with privileges on an ongoing basis rather than
the two year reappointment process and thus allow them to
take the appropriate steps to improve performance on a
more timely basis
– Require organizations to establish a process to evaluate the
specific competence of all practitioners who do not have
documented evidence of competency performing the
privileges at the organization (e.g. new appointees, new
privileges for current staff)
– Process to evaluate a current privileged practitioner’s ability
to provide safe, high quality patient care.
