Medical Services Professionals (MSPs) hold a unique place in the healthcare industry. Medical Staff leaders, practitioners and providers rely on MSPs to ensure qualitative regulatory compliance, performance improvement, accreditation, credentialing and governance for physicians, practitioners, and other healthcare providers. MSPs ensure the design, implementation, and maintenance of current industry practices to promote quality patient care. Their roles are rapidly changing due to competition, increased government influence, and vast changes in technology that demand for service delivery improvements worldwide.

The successful MSP will require a formal professional development plan, comprised of skills and knowledge for both personal and career choices as the industry moves into the future. This book is presented in an easy to read format and contains a series of building blocks, "points" to navigate career progression logically. Each point highlights solutions for MSPs to test and apply with real-life stories interspersed to illustrate points. This book contains a helpful glossary, sample job descriptions, and terms specific to the MSP.
