The Hospital Board of Trustees for the Johnson County Healthcare Center have approved the latest credentialing report for staff at the facility.
Approved were Dr. Miller, a part-time Emergency Room doctor; consultants Dr. Taylor in radiology and Dr. Pickrell in cardiology; staff physician Dr. Mullen: and an unnamed part-time CRNA.
All were reviewed and approved by the medical staff.
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians website, credentialing is the process of verifying qualifications to ensure current competence to grant privileges.
Credentialing involves verification of education, training, experience, and licensure to provide services; and privileging is the process of authorizing a specific scope of practice for patient care based on credentials and performance.
