Medical Staff Office supports the Medical Staff in those delegated activities performed on behalf  of the Board of Directors of the University of Kansas Hospital to assure quality patient care.  Allied Health Professionals applications are also processed here.  The MSO has been delegated the credentialing activities on behalf of Kansas University Physicians, Incorporated (KUPI), Mid America Cardiology (MAC), and Professional Services of KU Hospital (PSKU).  To physicians, the delegated agreements means less paperwork with managed care providers.
