Excerpt from Federal Updates:
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule to reduce unnecessary or overly burdensome requirements on health care providers. Multi-hospital systems may now have a unique medical staff for each hospital or a unified and integrated medical staff shared by multiple hospitals within the same system.
