The R&D of Privileges

The research and development of privileges by specialty and privileges outside of basic specialty training is a vital step that be overlooked within the medical staff office. The R&D of privileges can significantly change the quality of patient care as well as the quality of physicians/practitioners that practice and apply for privileges at your facility. As this R&D process is properly put in place, it instills a level of confidence that is demonstrated both within and outside of the hospital, which can enhance the marketing of the hospital as well the recruiting of physicians/practitioners.
