Triggered Initial Assessments (TIA) &
Reviews Guide

Covenant Health has established the Medical Staff Bylaws and Medical Staff Rules in order to assist Practitioners work within Covenant Health facilities. An important section in the Covenant Health Bylaws relates  to the processes for conducting a Triggered Initial Assessment (Part A) of a Concern or other information/complaints, as well as a Triggered Initial Assessment (Part B) (Triggered Review) of a Concern. This part of these Bylaws applies to all Practitioners, including medical administrative leaders, and to all categories of appointment. This document should not be used as a replacement for the Bylaws; it is simply a concise reference outlining a Practitioner’s patient care, professional conduct and governance responsibilities.
