MAMSS Presents "Peer Review: How, When and Why" 

Educational peer review, for both the doctor and the hospital, is a tool for identifying, tracking, and resolving inappropriate clinical performance and medical errors in their early stages. This only increases patient safety and overall quality of care.  One of the most important governing functions of a hospital’s medical staff is to ensure that physicians practicing in the hospital are clinically competent and behave professionally. This is accomplished through the credentialing and re-credentialing process. Peer Review is an essential element of credentialing and re-credentialing. FPPE and OPPE are essential elements of credentialing and re-credentialing. Review the purpose behind OPPE/ FPPE, the joint commission requirement to perform this type of review.  We will also review the challenges associated with OPPE/ FPPE and review sample data to track. 


By the end of the presentation, participants will:

  • 1.      Identify the importance of peer review – why we do it
  • 2.      Identify strategies for effective peer review
  • 3.      Identify pitfalls to avoid related to peer review
