ACCESS YOUR complimentary copy of The Greeley Guide to External Peer Review.
The increasing spotlight on quality and safety issues in healthcare has made peer review more important than ever. Legal, regulatory, accreditation and other requirements demand that healthcare organizations have solid peer review policies, procedures, and practices.
In addition to maintaining excellent internal peer review systems, healthcare organizatios should understand why, when, and how External Peer Review (EPR) might be necessary and useful to them. Effective use of EPR can, for example, reduce conflict, head off litigation, provide a rationale for corrective action, and move an organization past roadblocks in its performance improvement efforts. Here’s what is included:
- What is peer review and why is it so important?
- What should my EPR policy cover?
- How do we proceed when we determine EPR is necessary?
- Peer Review confidentiality, laws and protections?
