17
  • NAMSS Certification
  • Putting MSPs in the
  • Drivers Seat

18
Fast Certification Facts
  • NAMSS has achieved NCCA accreditation for the
    CPCS and CPMSM certifications
  • NAMSS CCN completed a job task analysis which was
    used to develop the newest versions of the
    certification exams
  • Implementing a Certificant Referral Program to
    increase certificant candidates

19
Why Certify?
  • Certification by NAMSS puts MSPs in the drivers
    seat It increases MSPs potential for
    advancement in any healthcare environment and
    indicates to their supervisor(s) and
    accreditation surveyors that they are experts in
    the field, both which enhance an MSPs value and
    job security.
  • Job seekers! Certification is a
  • requirement of many employers,
  • especially in positions of management.

20
  • NAMSS Partnerships
  • Building Recognition for MSPs as the
    Gatekeepers to Quality Care

21
NAMSS 2011 Advocacy Agenda
  • To educate policymakers and healthcare leaders on
    the value of the MSP in the delivery of
    healthcare
  • To advocate for policies and resources that will
    support MSPs in our evolving roles
  • To work with government, accreditation agencies,
    and association leaders to ensure that patient
    safety remains the central focus of quality
    healthcare

22
The Ideal Credentialing Solution
  • Integration of health IT should not be limited to
    the electronic health record
  • MSPs should have a one-stop source for a primary
    source verified file, making the credentialing
    process more efficient
  • A solution that will not replace MSPs, but allows
    MSPs to focus time on the investigation of
    questionable files, OPPE, FPPE, and other
    quality-focused initiatives

23
How Would it Work?
  • Intelligent. Using available technology, the
    system would perform a cross-check of data
    elements to verify the physicians identity and
    to catch adverse information that may not have
    been reported in the application
  • Interoperable. The system would be based online
    in a secure system that works with credentialing
    software
  • Innovative. Many companies are trying to develop
    a one-stop credentialing system, but there is no
    true solution yet available

24
Affiliation History
  • The Ideal Credentialing Solution would use
    hospital directory information or a standardized
    roster to piece together a timeline of physician
    affiliations
  • This would provide a solution to the
    time-consuming process of investigating time
    gaps in a physicians application

25
The Ideal Credentialing Solution
  • Course instructors at Harvard/MIT have expressed
    interest in having students explore the
    feasibility of creating the Ideal Credentialing
    Solution
  • Harvard/MIT students will also look at existing
    technology to see how it matches up to the
    concept of the Ideal Credentialing Solution
  • NAMSS continues outreach to government and
    private stakeholders for their thoughts on the
    Ideal Credentialing Solution

26
NAMSS in Washington
  • In January, NAMSS President Kate Conklin met with
    representatives from the following offices in DC
  • Department of Veterans Affairs
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • ESAR-VHP
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
  • Office of Clinical Standards and Quality
  • Survey and Certification Group
  • Office of E-Health Standards
  • Senator John Cornyn (TX)
  • Representative Michael Burgess (TX)

27
NAMSS in Washington
  • In each meeting, the MSP role was recognized as a
    vital component of quality healthcare
  • Some staffers were surprised by the lack of
    transparency and the inefficiencies that
    complicate credentialing
  • NAMSS was recognized as a true thought leader
    with the Ideal Credentialing Solution concept

28
NAMSS in Washington
  • While at CMS, NAMSS was provided with
    clarification on some of the most common
    questions from MSPs on CMS policies
  • CMS also helped NAMSS identify other federal
    agencies and offices that have an interest in
    improving credentialing technology
  • The ESAR-VHP team and NAMSS will continue to
    discuss the best ways to ensure quality
    credentialing of healthcare providers for
    disaster response

29
HFAP Standards
  • In 2010, HFAP COO George Reuther contacted NAMSS,
    giving us the opportunity to recommend revisions
    to their standards
  • A five-member NAMSS task force
  • analyzed and recommended edits to the Medical
    Staff and Allied Health Chapters of the HFAP
    Standards
  • proposed the addition of a standard that would
    require facilities to have a qualified MSP
    managing the functions of the medical staff
    department
  • Edits were submitted to HFAP in February 2011

30
Strategic Partnerships
  • AHLA
  • CAQH
  • ABMS
  • AMA-OMSS
  • FSMB
  • NAHQ

31
Other NAMSS Resources
32
Medical Staffing Ratios Survey
  • NAMSS commissioned a Medical Staffing Study in
    2009 to provide states and individual members
    with updated data and trends.
  • The results of the study help
  • Identify the number and validate the complexity
    of the application and verification process.
  • Provide a benchmark for facilities to reference
    when justifying business needs.
  • Indicate how tasks, roles, and responsibilities
    of medical services staff have expanded and
    changed over time.
  • Results of the survey and materials to help
    maximize its application are available to NAMSS
    members in the Members Only Section of the Web
    site.

33
MSP Video What Is Medical Staff Management?
  • Viewable and downloadable on the NAMSS Web site
  • Emphasizes the value of medical services
    professionals
  • Demonstrates the link between MSPs and patient
    safety

34
Get Involved with NAMSS
  • Now is the time to start thinking about whether a
    volunteer leadership position within NAMSS is
    right for you, and if it is, that you are taking
    the appropriate steps now to reach that goal
  • Review the Director and Officer Criteria found
    online in the Nomination of Board Members policy
  • Identify what steps you should take to achieve
    your leadership goal
  • Reach out to others for guidance

35
New Changes to Nominating Criteria
  • NAMSS Officers Now requires previous experience
    as a NAMSS Committee chair or vice-chair, or as a
    NAMSS Board member.
  • NAMSS Director at Large Now includes
    demonstrated experience on a state association
    board or a NAMSS committee.
  • These initial criteria are then considered in
    conjunction with an applicants formal education,
    years in the profession, character references and
    interviews with the Nominating Committee.

36
What Does NAMSS Currently Offer States?
  • Complimentary booth at the State Fair at the
    NAMSS Annual Conference
  • NAMSS Review and guidance on state bylaws and
    policies
  • NAMSS-hosted state Web sites
  • Access to a Director at Large liaison which
    provides a direct line to NAMSS Board
  • A state resources page on the NAMSS Web site as
    well as a state leaders discussion forum
    (includes PR toolkit, conference planning
    resources and soon to include a tax and
    incorporation toolkit)
  • NAMSS give-a-ways and materials for state
    association meetings

37
State Affiliation
  • Currently, state associations are not officially
    affiliated with NAMSS.
  • NAMSS Board of Directors is looking into
    affiliation and will be seeking input from state
    leaders at the 2011 Leadership Conference.
  • Affiliation will allow for NAMSS and the state
    associations to remain separate legal entities,
    while enabling NAMSS to provide valuable services
    such as discounted insurance.

38
What Affiliation May Bring
  • Through affiliation, NAMSS hopes to be able to
    offer the following additional benefits
  • Discounted Insurance (Directors and Officers,
    Liability, Conference Cancellation)
  • Assistance with tax questions and incorporation
