Improve Your Medical Facilities’ Reputation with a Peer Review

November 15, 2015

Medical Peer Review

Medical peer review is the process by which a physician or a committee of physicians examines the work of a peer and determines whether the physician under review has met accepted standards of care in rendering medical services.

With a focus on high-quality health outcomes, independent medical peer review organizations can deliver reliable decisions that are consistent with the appropriate standards of care and free of conflicts of interest. This promotes best practices in workers’ compensation claims, hospitals, surgical centers and independent physician practices utilizing evidence-based medicine.
