2018 OMSS Interim Meeting highlights

The AMA Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) held its 2018 Interim Meeting November 8-10 in National Harbor, Md., with approximately 75 members in attendance. These dedicated OMSS representatives have been selected by their medical staff colleagues to represent their staffs at OMSS meetings and to serve as liaisons between their staffs and the AMA throughout the year.

As part of its continuing dedication to educating medical staff leaders and other physicians on emerging issues in health care, the section hosted education sessions on systematization of medical staff functions and the role of MOC in credentialing and privileging. Additionally, section members participated in a range of programs jointly produced by the AMA Sections and Special Groups. Learn more about these programs.

The OMSS Assembly considered 7 items of business, prompting robust discussion on a range of issues including negligent credentialing, assessing the competency of senior physicians, and protecting the patient-physician relationship. The section transmitted four resolutions to the House of Delegates for consideration at the 2018 Interim Meeting.
