Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE) and Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE) Policy
To develop a process whereby practitioners are evaluated for quality of care when
- New privileges are requested or when there is a question regarding the ability to maintain a high standard of care - FPPE
- Ongoing evaluation of performance to ensure a high standard of care - OPPE
All members of the medical staff will be evaluated on an ongoing basis to identify trends, complications, behaviors, outcomes or other issues which warrant a focused evaluation. A focused evaluation will also be performed on all new providers. Our policy mirrors the recommendations of the Joint Commission.
