What You Need To Know To Protect Your Privileges

All providers at EHC must complete the 2014 module by midnight, Monday, December 1, 2014. This includes faculty physicians (e.g., TEC, EMCF); Emory-employed, non-faculty physicians (e.g., ESA); private practice physicians with patient care privileges at any Emory Healthcare facility; allied health practitioners (e.g., podiatrists, optometrists); and private practice advanced practice providers (e.g., advanced practice nurses and PAs).

What exactly are the requirements?

There are three things you need to do to protect your privileges:

1. Get the annual seasonal influenza vaccination.

2. Get the TB test (tests performed within the past 12 months are permitted), unless previously PPD positive or have history of treated TB.

3. Complete all requirements of the Annual Provider Patient Safety Module curriculum and test. This includes taking a course and test, including the compliance module; reviewing, adding or updating your immunizations; documenting your seasonal influenza vaccination within the module; and self reporting your TB test (performed within the past 12 months) within the module.
