The Medical Staff Services Department lives at the intersection of patient safety, physician competence, regulatory compliance, and physician satisfaction. When you implement these 3 key optimizations, you will unlock your MSSD’s full potential.
1. Appropriate Staffing Levels for Medical Staff Services Department
Based on a five-year analysis of client experiences, TMG is offering the following credentialing staffing ratios:
Hospitals that use a Credentials Verification Organization should utilize one MSP for every 220 credentialed pracitioners.
Hospitals that don’t contract with a CVO should utilize one MSP for every 150 credentialed practitioners.
2. Integrating Functions
When payer enrollment and credentialing functions are merged, interdepartmental processes become streamlined and duplication of effort for provider data management tasks is eliminated. This lowers operational costs and lessens time for reimbursement.
3. Adequate Training
Medical Staff Services Departments often suffer from training deficiencies. Employees may not have critical foundational knowledge in technical skills, may not stay abreast of regulatory or accreditation changes, or may not be equipped to take on managerial roles. Investing in professional development delivers almost immediate return on investment, both in terms of efficiency and lower turnover.
