Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Clarity Group, Inc., a leading healthcare resource specializing in integrated risk/quality/safety systems and captive insurance company development and management, announced today that its operating division, Clarity PSO, sponsored a Webinar focusing on the legal and regulatory requirements associated with granting and renewing physician privileges (OPPE/FPPE) and how a PSO could be utilized to create a learning environment for physician performance improvement. The Patient Safety Act offers Providers a great opportunity to take advantage of the privilege and confidentiality protections afforded by reporting physician performance improvement activities to a PSO.
A strong panel of presenters was selected to present at the webinar, and they include:
- Stephen M. Dorman, MD, Health Care Consultant, was a physician surveyor in the hospital program at The Joint Commission (TJC) from 1994-2003 and also served on the faculty in the Department of Education at TJC.
- Michael R. Callahan, Esq., Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, Partner, has been a practicing health care attorney for 30 years assisting hospital, health system and Patient Safety Organization clients on a variety of health care legal issues including health care antitrust, HIPAA and regulatory compliance.
- Ellen Flynn, RN, MBA, JD, is a clinical expert on Peer Review and Quality Improvement and brings a deep experience in the development and implementation of patient safety initiatives and resources.
