CHA Webinar Details New Parameters for Physician Reporting
Learn new requirements to avoid hefty penalties

CHA will hold a webinar Feb. 13 from 1:30-3 p.m. (PT) to outline recent changes and updates to physician reporting obligations. New requirements established in California Business & Professions Code Section 805.01 and SB 798 expand the scope of liability for hospital leadership and significantly increase potential fines — up to $100,000 per incident — for failure to report specific physician professional review or privilege-related actions for a medical disciplinary cause or reason. Hospitals and other health care providers must also consider changes to National Practitioner Data Bank policy when reporting certain adverse actions.

Representatives from the Medical Board of California, the National Practitioner Data Bank and Arent Fox LLP will discuss how the new law and policy changes impact the reporting process, legal implications for hospitals and their leadership, when reporting is necessary and the consequences of not reporting to the National Practitioner Data Bank or the Medical Board.

This program is recommended for chief executive officers, chief medical officers, vice presidents of medical affairs, medical staff leaders, chiefs of staff, compliance officers, medical staff services staff and legal counsel.
