The black doc. Discover the forged doctor using Credential System

  1. 1. Medical Staff Credentialing System Discover the black doc
  2. 2.  With the advance in technology, accreditation and social media clients are becoming more knowledgeable about their bill of rights in a given health care center.  Medical errors are spreading through social media like fire in dry grass  Accreditation standards states that patient’s bill of rights must be known to all patients
  3. 3.  Forged doctors incidents are increasing especially in the Middle East  The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCHS) discovered 2,714 forged certificates for health care practitioners in the last 10 years, according to the SCHS.  How did they manage to get into health care centers?They were not screened carefully by hiring personnel I guess, or they were very good in faking their degrees and education history, more likely.
  4. 4.  High Risk non sense care provided by a non medical person  Increased risk of errors  Increased risk of sue case  Massive damage to the hiring organization  Massive damage to the patient  Increased cost on organization and patient  Never ending list…..
  5. 5. Some hiring personnel are perfect while others are not. Why take the risk? Install a Credentialing system It does two main functions 1. Screens the educational and experience background for all docs (Doctors) 2. It maintains the privileging within the contract of the doc in a given organization
  6. 6.  Medical Staff have a list of allowed medical interventions  JCIAO standards states that physicians are allowed certain privileges after they earn it through education and practice  Maintaining the list of privileges is a must  Nursing staff must verify that upon calling a physician to perform a procedure he has the privilege to perform it
  7. 7.  The Credentialing system can track who is allowed to do what  Supports proctoring, certain procedures can be privileged after being proctored by a qualified physician  Certain privileges needs renewal, tracking such privileges is another challenge
  8. 8.  Another bonus, criminal record check  Credentialing system could track if a subject doctor has a criminal record where record is available on-line such as in U.S.A.  Often times a skilled Physician with valid credentials comes to practice in another country, but he has criminal record.The risk is high again.
