AHIA Webinar: Auditing the Locum Tenen Process

The trend for use of locum tenens has been increasing due to the demand of hospitals short on providers. In a recent audit our organization performed, we focused on contract management/invoicing, hospital privileging, payor credentialing, quality management, billing, and badge access for locums. This is not a commonly audited area in the healthcare system but it poses a lot of risk regarding joint commission standards and patient care.
