Peer Review Impact

Peer review is of little use, if it can't be shown to improve quality of care.

Trustees and medical staff leaders should take an interest in the outcomes of peer review.

This report looks simple, but it cuts to the heart of what peer review committees need to do to have an impact on the quality of care.  It helps to answer the question of what was learned from the peer review process in aggregate.  Through diligent case review, hospitals have identified 3-4 times as many system process issues as individual improvement opportunities.

Thus, attention to this report can help maintain review committee focus on identifying and acting on all the learning opportunities that are discoverable through peer review.
