Q: What is the difference between a “provisional medical staff appointment” period and a “focused practitioner performance evaluation” (FPPE)?


A “provisional appointment” refers to the category of membership on a medical staff and specifications of what rights and membership-based privileges/obligations are associated with it. A provisional appointment has fewer rights and privileges than an active staff appointment. An “FPPE” period is a medical staff competency assessment policy-driven period of focused evaluation on privilege exercise for all newly privileged practitioners, or a practitioner who has been identified as having potential competency and/or patient safety concerns.
