Hospital Medical Staff Consultation

IMQ offers consultations and education programs to help physicians effectively fulfill their role in promoting quality of care in hospital and other settings. These programs , designed to meet the needs of medical staffs or individual departments, address a range of topics such as quality measurement, peer review, and credentialing and privileging.

Physician consultants also design custom education programs to meet specific needs, such as:

  • An orientation for physicians who are new to leadership roles
  • Training executive committees and department chiefs to improve the effectiveness of quality and patient safety functions
  • Helping medical staff understand compliance and data use requirements

Programs usually range from one to four hours of instruction. Custom education can include handout materials and, on occasion, CME joint or co-sponsorship.

Following a conversation to assess the goals and needs of a medical staff or medical group, IMQ will draft a proposal describing the services and identifying possible consultants and listing fees.

“Physicians who are considering a role as a leader in the medical staff organization should have a working knowledge of the activities performed by members of the MEC, and the various hospital medical staff committees.  This is so important, we made it a requirement that every member of the MEC undergo 4 hours of CME every other year,  related to medical staff processes.  The IMQ was excellent in designing a program that covered PEER review and Credentialing for our yearly retreat.   The program was interactive, informative and left everyone with the feeling that they will be able to do a much better job, as they represent their respective departments.”
