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. If a unified and integrated medical staff is chosen, each hospital must demonstrate that it actively addresses its use of a unified system and integrated medical staff model by a vote of the medical staff of each hospital to participate in such model and the unified staff adopting integrated policies and procedures, among other requirements.
