Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time. -Mark Studin 2006
"What is the benefit of being Hospital Qualified"
Dr Studin: So the question was what's the benefits of being a hospital qualify? The answer is threefold. I just got a call from a Dave packer in Chesapeake, Virginia. He was just invited to be on the board of the whole hospital system and he was working with doctors in the hospital previously. But one of the requirements of the hospital is you have to be hospital qualified. Now from their perspective, you have to be certified, which is joint association of hospitals, but with us, you're approved to Cleveland University, Kansas City. Now that doesn't qualify that, but for a hospital system wanting to get you in, it just checks off that box and it gives them cover, which helps. The second reason is when you're dealing with attorneys, you get to say, Hey, I'm on your credentials. It's on your CV, your hospital qualified. And it matters tremendously to juries for a perception that you are what you are. You've earned that hospital qualification is a lot of work that goes on behind that. The third reason is when you're dealing with co treating medical doctors, physicians, and you say your hospital qualified you are, they see that on your credentials or it comes up, hey, I'm qualified to work on a hospital. Really? What's your credentials? Well, I've taken courses in collaborative care with physicians. I've taken courses in primary spine care and MRI, spine interpretation, triaging, the injured stroke. I mean, there are a lot of things that go into that to ensure, that we could work in a collaborative environment. So there's really a lot of upside and there's no downside other than spending a couple of bucks, which goes to Cleveland, but the credential you never lose for the rest of your life. And it matters, if you have the opportunity to grab a credential, grab everyone you can.
