Our Medical Peer Review Services provides credible, unbiased evidence-based opinions by reviewing the relevant medical records, which assists clients in determining the appropriateness of treatment plans and medical necessity.
We address issues involving a single patient care incident, a specific procedure, or the activities of an entire practice. Our in-depth analysis of the problems involve a tailored review to determine which quality indicators may be of concern and makes suggestions for solutions.
Each medical record reviewed will have a record specific report completed. Each engagement will also include an executive summary of all care reviewed with opinions and recommendations. Our services include a focused review with the physician reviewer addressing specific clinical questions/concerns requested by the client. Our comprehensive review evaluates all aspects of the clinical care provided to the patient.
The length of time from the submission of data to receipt of the final written report varies depending on the complexity of the review. Saponaro Inc will make every effort to respond to emergency situations in a more expeditious timeline. Expedited reviews are frequently available within 10 days. Standard reviews are completed within 21 to 30 days.
We offer hourly fees based on medical specialty quoted in advance with no minimum volume.
Our approach is to adapt to the specific needs dictated by the situation. To initiate a Medical Peer Review Service, please contact our office.
