"Privileging can be a complex process, but when done effectively and efficiently, it's a process that ensures patient safety and overall healthcare quality. We feel that Core Privilege Plus, with its basis in the research provided by HCPro and the outstanding privileging design work of the Greeley Company, is the best tool available for assisting medical staff services professionals and physician leadership with what is a very challenging job."
