The license for PREP-MSTM Peer Review Program Management Software includes everything the typical facility would require to effectively use the software with its pre-existing process: software configuration, installation, training materials, technical support, product upgrades, an annual program data review & analysis report, and Patient Safety Organization services. Please compare that apples to apples with your current vendor's offering. You should find that PREP-MSTM offers superior support for QI model peer review and much greater ROI.

The My PREPTM Package adds tools for quickly implementing QI Model peer review and measuring clinical performance, supported by a credit for 4 hours of consultation.

For those whose desire consultative support, PREPSM is available in 3 levels of intensity. They are compared here in terms of the number of onsite consulting days allocated to each major project phase. Each package includes additional remote consulting time to facilitate completion of the overall project plan, the draft peer review policy, peer review forms applicable to identified types of clinical activity, and training materials for reviewers and for peer review support staff.

Annual program assessment has proved highly useful in identifying areas for ongoing program improvement and for maintaining momentum. In the Basic and Standard packages, the annual assessment is based on review of program data. In the Complete package, the annual assessment also includes one onsite day for committee observation and interviews.

The Basic package may be adequate for a relatively simple organization that has already achieved firm commitment to implement the QI model. Otherwise, either the Standard or Complete package would be a better choice since they provide for an onsite visit to assist in generating the enthusiasm and commitment needed for success. They also allow for more time to deal with organizational complexity.

Policy & Forms Development 2 2 3

Discounts are available for smaller hospitals to assure that total support for the QI Model is available to all. They are also offered to multi-hospital systems and clinical peer review improvement cooperative participants.
