    Ballard’s "contingency planning" article featured in Credentialing Resource Center Journal

    Health care partner and QMCG Executive Director Catherine Ballard’s article, “Contingency planning: Comply with privileging requirements for provider-base locations,” was recently featured in the Credentialing Resource Center Journal. According to Ballard, today’s hospitals must promote compliance CMS’ regulations with provider-based designations. However, this process can be challenging for a number of reasons. “Promoting ongoing regulatory compliance in the face of [many] challenges requires a proactive, not reactive, approach—that is, you need to consider not only the mechanics, but also the impact of a practitioner potentially having clinical privileges at more than one hospital location.”
