She brings more than 16 years of credentialing and privileging experience with The Greeley Company to her work with medical staff leaders and medical staff service professionals across the country.
Hospitals are under pressure to maintain best practices in credentialing and privileging that enable a high level of patient safety and quality of care. Greeley and HCPro's Credentialing Resource Center have joined forces to help medical staff professionals meet this challenge. With changing accreditation and regulatory standards by creating a new consulting membership service under the leadership of executive director Sally Pelletier, medical staff professionals now have the resources to comply.
Greeley consultants will bring to the new membership their extensive experience with helping hospitals plan and implement programs that continually improve and streamline credentialing and privileging practices. Simultaneously, these consultants will respond to emerging accreditation requirements, including the current industry focus on developing criteria for physician competency.
"I am very excited to be the executive director of Credentialing Resource Center Consulting," says Sally Pelletier, a senior consultant at Greeley since 2004. "This new opportunity will allow me to utilize my 16 years of credentialing and privileging experience to provide medical staff service professionals with the specialized guidance they need to succeed in today's fast-paced healthcare environment. FPPE and OPPE compliance and the increasing need to link practitioner competency to privilege delineation are examples of areas in which we serve hospitals nationwide. The Greeley Company's commitment to excellence in all of its services lends to the credibility of this outstanding program."
