Fremont, California (PressExposure) May 27, 2013 -- Summary: MentorHealth, a leading provider of online training for the healthcare industry, is organizing a webinar on the topic, "Fair Hearings from a Hearing Officer's Perspective" on June 11. William Mack Copeland, president of Executive & Managerial Development Group, will be the speaker at this session.
How does a hearing officer who is entrusted with an organization's application process and new applications, ensure a fair trial? What actions must be taken before corrective actions are suggested? How should the organization and the hearing officer prepare for the meeting? These are the points this webinar will take up for discussion.
Specifically, it will cover the actions that got to be and got not to be taken up. Areas such as the criteria, review of which kind of information is required to support the application with regard to education and training, prior practice, references and prior adverse actions and liability settlements, are all taken up. The speaker will familiarize participants with what kind of information should be solicited from other hospitals where the applicant claims to have privileges.
The elements of good, clear and concise bylaws, fair hearing plans and other policies will also be discussed. This session will emphasize the importance of not only having these documents but also following them in letter and spirit.
This session will cover the following areas:
- Clear and concise bylaws, policies and other directives
