Peer review can be beneficial to a healthcare organization, yet the increasing industry focus on quality assessment and improvement has strained conventional approaches to it. In fact, many of the laws around peer review do not take into account the huge range of quality review activities that organizations are participating in today. In an ever-scrutinizing society and value-based world, quality review activities remain incredibly important for success. Therefore, an emphasis on quality and efficiency leads to an increased importance on knowing why and when to use recognized peer review principles when managing the "peer review” process.
Speaker Brian Betner is a shareholder with Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman, which is the nation's largest law firm focused exclusively on the health care industry. He will break down the peer review process, outlining the challenges and solutions as well as the legal and confidentiality requirements every healthcare organization should be aware of.
“Peer review processes help our healthcare organizations continue their evolution of patient safety and quality care initiatives. When effectively implemented, utilized, and institutionalized, it lends to the ongoing efforts to refine healthcare delivery, provide the highest quality patient care and balance the challenges facing healthcare providers to manage the delivery of value based care,” said Patrick Birmingham, Senior Vice President and General Manager of symplr. “Brian Betner is an expert on peer review processes: what works, what is beneficial and areas in which we all could improve. In this webcast, he will help attendees better understand how peer review processes work and what legal significance they hold.”
