A Wellbeing Committee’s focus is on the safety of patients and the responsibilities of the medical staff as well as the needs of the physician. Committee members need to understand their role as advocate for the physician. Medical staff leaders need to understand their role in assuring that confidentiality policies can be followed successfully.
In this workshop offered in San Diego on May 7, a legal team from Procopio will assist those charged with overseeing physician health activities for their medical staff or medical group in understanding how to maintain confidentiality in their processes. Confidentiality protections will be reviewed and examples will be given of when exceptions are made and why.
