A hospital medical staff’s failure to properly conduct peer review activities can result in legal challenges and potential antitrust liability. The Health Care Quality Improvement Act (HCQIA) protects against these risks—as long as you meet four specific standards. It’s critical that your hospital team know these immunity provisions and how to use them.
Health care law pro William Mack Copeland details HCQIA and how it can protect your organization in this webinar. Failure to take the appropriate actions and to follow the correct protocol can result in a disastrous situation. Let Copeland help you unravel this complicated law and put it to beneficial use at your facility.
This instructive session will teach you all about HCQIA, its legislative history and congressional intent, immunity provisions, standards for achieving immunity, and a review of how courts have interpreted the Act. You will also learn what is required to provide a “fair” hearing, and the actions to take before and during the hearing process. Learn how to conduct peer review inquiries without the fear of lawsuit reprisals.
