Physician vacancies or shortages are often unexpected and require healthcare organizations to make quick hiring decisions. To prevent gaps in care, many organizations turn to short-term and interim staffing known as locum tenens, Latin for “to hold the place of.” Locum tenens is an important component of healthcare today, especially in rural communities. However, the rules can be confusing, and can lead to compliance issues if not followed correctly.
This course will discuss the circumstances under which locum tenens are commonly used, along with the limitations and requirements for each. We will cover two models for using locum tenens staffing and the attendant requirements; as well as operational strategies to ensure compliance with requirements, billing, and compliance.
