Partner Michael Callahan Quoted in Credentialing & Peer Review Legal Insider on Medical Staff Bylaws

Firm News | November 2008
Michael Callahan, a partner in the firm’s Health Care Practice, was quoted in an article in Credentialing & Peer Review Legal Insider on key areas for medical facilities to address in medical staff bylaws. One of these key areas is the credentialing of telemedicine providers. The Joint Commission permits facilities to accept the credentialing and privileges of telemedicine providers if the contracting entity is accredited by the Commission. However, Mr. Callahan says, “Many of my clients who have [considered] relying on the telemedicine company’s credentialing and privileging processes are not entirely comfortable with this.” He says the degree of scrutiny depends on the facility’s own standards and on what duties will fall to telemedicine physicians.
