LifePoint Physician Performance Toolkit*

Introduction: Credentialing is now an ongoing process that involves continuous


evaluation of a practitioner’s performance using an evidence-based approach
that is fairly and consistently applied using criteria appropriate to the specialty
area of practice and request privileges. Physician profile data should be robust,
include comparisons, and lead to informed decision-making around granting or
denial of privileges.

Definitions:
 Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation - A documented summary of
ongoing data collected for the purpose of assessing a practitioner's
clinical competence and professional behavior. The information gathered
during this process factors into decisions to maintain, revise or revoke
existing privilege (s).

 Focused Professional Practice Evaluations (Focused Review) - A


time-limited evaluation of practitioner competence in performing a
specific privilege. This process is implemented for:
 All newly requested privileges and
 Whenever a question arises regarding a practitioner's ability to provide
safe, high Quality patient care

 Practitioner – Individual with Medical Staff or Allied Health privileges.

Core Competencies:
 Patient Care
 Medical/Clinical Knowledge
 Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
 Interpersonal and communication skills
 Professionalism
 System-Based Practice

Steps for implementing OPPE:


 Identify all current criteria for each specialty/subspecialty
 Identify applicable core competencies (may meet more than one)
 Identify the gaps
 Meet with key medical staff leaders to complete the criteria/indicators
 Complete a matrix for data sources to connect the data to Quality and
Medical Staff Office
 Define periodic timeframe for review
 Implement

Steps for Developing An Evidence


Based Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation

Step One
Complete a worksheet for each department and sometimes subspecialties within
the department based on what is already being measured. Compare the list to
the practitioner’s privilege list for specialties and subspecialties assigned to that
department. You must be collecting data that relates to what they are privileged
to perform.

Step Two
If the list is inadequate, meet with the Department Chair or other appropriate
medical staff member to add appropriate indicators. Develop a matrix of data
source. Again, using privilege list to make sure the data represents what the
members are privileged to do.

Step Three
Seek approval of the criteria by the appropriate medical staff leaders and/or
committees.

Step Four
Create the profiles from the indicator worksheet.

Step Five
Define your periodic timeframe for reporting the profile i.e. 3 months or 6 months.

Step Six
Develop a standard report format to and from the Department Chair to the
Quality Department or appropriate Quality group based on your structure.

Step Seven
Set up a process for the feed back to reach the database (file) of the individuals
being considered for reappointment.

Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation


EXAMPLE POLICY
JC Standards: MS.4.40 and MS.4.45

Purpose
1. To clearly define the process utilized for facilitating the continuous evaluation of each
practitioner's professional practice;
2. To define the type of data (criteria/indicators) to be collected for the ongoing
professional practice evaluation. (Note: The criteria defined for Ongoing Professional
Practice Evaluation, will be utilized as screening triggers for a possible Focused
Professional Practice Evaluation).
3. To ensure the information resulting from the ongoing professional practice
evaluation is used to determine whether to continue, limit or revoke any existing
privileges;
4. To define the process for collecting, investigating, and addressing clinical practice
concerns, including the process utilized to identify trends that impact Quality of care
and patient safety;
5. To ensure reported concerns regarding a privileged practitioner's professional
practice are uniformly investigated and addressed as defined by hospital
policy and applicable law;
6. To define those circumstances in which an external review or focused review
may be necessary; and
7. To define the medical staff's leadership role in the organization's performance
improvement activities related to practitioner performance and ensure that when
the findings are relevant to an individual's performance, the findings in the ongoing
evaluations of competence are in accordance with recognized standards.

Scope
This policy applies to all Medical Staff and Allied Health Professionals privileged through
medical staff mechanisms at the hospital.

Definitions
 Focused Professional Practice Evaluations (Focused Review) - A time-
limited evaluation of practitioner competence in performing a specific
privilege. This process is implemented for:
 All newly requested privileges and
 Whenever a question arises regarding a practitioner's ability to provide
safe, high quality patient care.

 Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation - A documented summary of


ongoing data collected for the purpose of assessing a practitioner's clinical
competence and professional behavior. The information gathered during this
process factors into decisions to maintain, revise or revoke existing privilege
(s).

Committee or Board of Directors recommends an external review (With
the exception of the Board of Directors, the MEC has final decision if an
external review is required);

V. Notification Review Determinations

1. The individual under review will receive written notification on cases


scored a 3, 4 or 5 or when trends exceed threshold parameters on
established indicator criteria. The trend reports will be provided on the
Ongoing Professional Practice Feedback reports.

2. All action/follow-up/requests for interventions will be in a written


response or meeting with the involved practitioner.

3. All correspondence will be confidential.

4. Copies of letters and notifications will be kept on file.

VI. Interventions
Depending upon the findings of the ongoing professional practice review,
interventions may be implemented. The criteria utilized to determine the type of
intervention includes severity, frequency of occurrence and trigger (thresholds)
level exceeded. Interventions include, but may not be limited to, proctoring,
focused review and corrective action.

VII. Effectiveness of Review Process


1. Consistency - Cases meeting the criteria for reviewable circumstances will
undergo review, conducted according to this defined procedure.

2. Timeliness
a. Routine Performance Review - Time review initiated to time case

April 2008 10
ACCEPTED

closed should closely adhere to a 60-day timeframe. However, there


may be circumstances when this timeline is exceeded due to external
review process. The time frame should be adhered to as reasonable.
b. Fast Track Review - Circumstances may arise in which the review
process must be expedited. This includes cases meeting the
organization's sentinel event definition. In other cases, the
determination for fast-tracking may be left to the discretion of the Chief
of Staff, Department Chairperson or Medical Executive Committee
and corporate Quality Director. The timeframe for a Fast Track Review
should not exceed 45 days from the time the event is determined to be
a sentinel event. This time frame should be adhered to as reasonable.

3. Defensible - The conclusions reached during the review process are to be


supported by rationale that specifically address the issues for which the
review was conducted, including, as appropriate, reference to the
literature and relevant clinical practice guidelines.

4. Balanced - Minority opinions and views of the individual under review are
to be considered and recorded.

5. Useful - The results of review activities are to become part of the


practitioner's Quality profile and to be used for credentialing and
privileging decisions and, as appropriate, in performance improvement
activities.

6. Ongoing - The review conclusions are tracked over time, and actions
based on review conclusions are monitored for effectiveness by the
Medical Executive Committee.

FOCUSED PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE EVALUATION POLICY


Purpose
To establish a systematic process to evaluate and confirm the current
competency of practitioners’ performance of privileges at ______________
hospital. This process is known as focused professional practice evaluation
(―FPPE‖ or ―focused evaluation‖).

Definition of FPPE
Focused professional practice evaluation is defined as a time-limited period
during which the organization evaluates and determines a practitioner’s
professional performance of privileges. FPPE will occur in all requests for new
privileges and when there are concerns regarding the provision of safe, high
quality care by a current medical staff member, as recognized through the peer
review process.

This process includes an assessment for proficiency in the following six areas of
general competencies:
1. Patient care.
2. Medical and clinical knowledge
3. Practice-based learning and improvement
4. Interpersonal and communication skills
5. Professionalism
6. Systems-based practice

Information for this evaluation may be derived from the following:


1. Discussion with other individuals involved in the care of each patient (e.g.
consulting physician, assistants in surgery, nursing, or administrative personnel)
2. Chart review
3. Monitoring clinical practice patterns
4. Proctoring
5. Simulation
6. External peer review

Responsibilities
The department chair (or division chief) shall be responsible for overseeing the
evaluation process for all applicants or staff members assigned to their
department or division.

The credentials committee is charged with the responsibility of monitoring


compliance with this policy. It accomplishes this by receiving regular status
reports on the progress of all practitioners undergoing focused evaluation as well
as any issues or problems involving the implementation of this policy.

April 2008 13
ACCEPTED

Performance of FPPE
The type of focused professional performance evaluation to be used will be
determined by the department chair based on the individual practitioner’s
circumstance using the following guidelines:

1. New applicant.
a. Peer recommendations from previous institutions will be confirmed by the
department chair.

b. Performance indicators, or aggregate data, within the department will be


monitored.

c. FPPE peer evaluations by the department chair and one other active staff
member will be completed within 3 months of initiation of clinical activity. The
department chair should seek input from colleagues, consultants, nursing
personnel, and administration.

d. Procedure and clinical activity logs will be reviewed from either previous
institutions or training programs.
 If current competency from previous institution is well-documented
through case logs of activity within recent year, then no additional
monitoring is required.
 If current competency and adequate clinical activity is not well-
documented from previous institution, then a higher level of focused
evaluation will be necessary for this type of applicant. Specifically,
concurrent chart review, proctoring, or simulation should occur to fully
evaluate the ability to perform requested privileges. The focused
evaluation plan will be determined by the department chair with
approval of the credentials committee.

2. New privilege for existing staff member.


If a new requested privilege is significantly different from one’s current practice,
then training in the new privilege or proctoring of cases should be arranged,
documented, and confirmed. This process and the number of cases necessary
should be determined by the department chair and the credentials committee. If
new technology is involved, then the CSC committee recommendations should
be considered.

3. FPPE required as a result of peer review.


The department chairman will establish a plan on an individual basis to be
approved by the medical executive committee when focused evaluation has been
recommended by the department peer review committee.

April 2008 14
ACCEPTED

4. When a privilege is used infrequently.


The department should determine a minimum number of cases to be performed
to maintain proficiency. This should be denoted in the delineation of privileges
plan. If the minimum amount is not being met, then the department chairman will
establish a plan for focused evaluation.

Duration of FPPE
FPPE shall begin with the applicant’s first admission or performance of the newly
requested privilege. Each department/division will determine the number of cases
or charts to be reviewed. FPPE for new applicants should be completed by 3
months. This will allow for further evaluation, if indicated, prior to the end of the
initial appointment cycle. All proctoring activity, summaries, and reports need to
be completed prior to the end of the 12 month initial appointment cycle. If the
FPPE has not been completed, then unrestricted privileges will not be granted.

Supervision of FPPE
Assignment of focused professional practice evaluations will be the responsibility
of the department chair or division chief. The chair/chief may appoint active staff
members to complete the appropriate tasks. Division consultants and medical
directors should be utilized. It is recommended that each department establish a
panel of proctors.

Proctor Qualifications
If proctoring is required, the following guidelines should be used:
1. Proctors must be in good standing of the active medical staff of MHMH.
2. The proctor must have unrestricted privileges to perform any procedure to be
concurrently observed.
3. Proctors will be mutually agreed upon between the department chair and the
physician being proctored.
4. The proctor may be a member of the same practice group as the physician
being proctored.

Responsibilities of Proctors
1. Proctor shall directly observe the procedure being performed, concurrently
observe medical management or retrospectively review the completed medical
record following discharge and will complete appropriate forms.
2. Ensure confidentiality of proctor results and forms. Submit completed forms to
the medical staff office.
3. Submit a summary report at conclusion of proctoring period.
4. If at any time during the proctoring period the proctor has concerns about the
practitioner’s competency to perform specific clinical privileges or care related to
a specific patient, the proctor shall promptly notify the department chair.

Medical Staff’s Ethical Position on Proctoring


Concurrent proctoring is one method of evaluation for competency for
procedures that may be used. The proctor is not a mentor or a consultant. The
proctor is an agent of the hospital. The proctor shall receive no compensation
from any patient for this service.

April 2008 15
ACCEPTED

The proctor or any practitioner, however, should nonetheless render emergency


medical care to the patient for medical complications arising from the care
provided by the proctored practitioner. The hospital will defend and indemnify any
practitioner who is subjected to a claim or suit arising from his or her acts or
omissions in the role of proctor.

Description of Forms in the Toolkit

 Form 1000 Indicator/Criteria List and Data Source Matrix


Each department and/or specialty needs indicators appropriate to the area of
practice. The indicator/criteria for each department or division should be
approved through the Medical Staff approval process. It will be important to
identify the group accountable for providing the data so the data can be brought
forward to the practitioner driven profile. Many of the indicator/ criteria will be
consistent across the organization with the same data source. The ones that are
approved for patient care are the ones that will change the most frequently from
one department to another.

 Form 2000 Ongoing Professional Practice Evidence Based Data


This form reflects the indicators/criteria presented for individual practitioners from
the Departments/Divisions. The trigger level should be established by the
medical staff.

 Form 3000 Periodic Report to the Department/Division Chair from the


Quality Department
This form provides an example of communication from the Quality Department or
Medical Staff Office to the Department Chair/Division Chair outlining practitioners
in their department or division that were at trigger levels. It will be important to
your success that appropriate communication links are established and there is
an appropriate action taken based on the trigger.

 Form 4000 Department/Division Responses Back to the Quality


Department or Medical Staff Office
This form provides an example of how the Department/Division chair starts to
document the appropriate action taken based on the periodic review.

Important Notes
1. The example forms do not include utilization or resource data (LOS, Avg
Charge, variance days, SIMS, etc), but this type of information should be
included on the profiles.
2. The data/numbers in these examples are just that—examples. Your facility
will need to develop your own comparisons and targets.
3. Sample documents should be used as a guideline for developing your own
unique documents that fit your healthcare organization. Make certain that you
use criteria that your hospital has adopted and you follow all of your state and
local laws.
