Credentialing red flags

Intuition can be the product of personal or professional experience and should not be swept under the rug. In most cases, an MSL can acquire the necessary details to assuage any remaining doubts and make an informed decision. The CVO should identify any unusual findings that require further vetting by an MSL or committee during the file review and approval process. A best practice for CVOs is to use specific guidelines that identify obvious red flags. The following is a sampling list of red flags to look for. This list is by no means all-inclusive (every application is unique and requires a slightly modified approach), but it is an excellent starting point.
