Additional ACG/ASGE Papers on Endoscopy

Are hospitals and health insurance plans exposed to potential litigation if they don’t establish guidelines for determining competency in providing endoscopic procedures? ACG in cooperation with ASGE, has published “Ensuring Competence in Endoscopy” which helps to answer this question. Along with the joint publication, a legal memorandum from a nationally-renowned litigation law firm, Williams & Connolly, is included. ACG members will receive a copy in the mail and ACG is also mailing a copy to all hospitals and health plans across the country. PDF’s of each may also be found by clicking on one of the links below.
