symplr Discusses The Positive Side of Peer Review in Monthly Provider Management Webcast Series
HOUSTON - JUNE 16, 2015 – symplrTM, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) based healthcare compliance and credentialing solutions, today announced the upcoming webcast titled “Removing the Stigma of Peer Review.” Part of the symplr Education Series focused on Provider Management, the webcast will air on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 12 pm CT/1 pm ET.
Healthcare peer review can conjure up negative connotations that quality activities are too punitive in nature, may lead to litigation, and that evaluations aren’t always handled consistently. Brian Betner, an attorney at Hall, Render, Killian, Health & Lyman, will discuss the common hurdles that complicate peer review while sharing recommendations for overcoming these hurdles to maximize performance.
“While peer review is a necessary tool in improving provider performance and delivering the highest level of care, it has oftentimes been handled poorly and implemented incorrectly by even the largest of healthcare organizations,” said Patrick Birmingham, Vice President and General Manager of Provider Management at symplr. “If we can assist organizations in creating an effective peer program, everyone will benefit from a culture of quality, provider engagement, and patient satisfaction.”
