AllMed Announces PeerScore Solutions for Hospital Peer Review
Date:1/13/2009

Customized services meet or exceed The Joint Commission's OPPE and FPPE standards

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- AllMed Healthcare Management today announced two new services to help hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) monitor and measure the performance of their physicians, as well as meet accreditation standards. The two PeerScore(SM) services help hospitals meet ongoing professional practice evaluation (OPPE) and focused professional practice evaluation (FPPE) required by The Joint Commission.

"Besides the obligatory analysis of any sentinel event, today's hospitals and ACSs also face tighter peer-review standards, increased scrutiny of doctors' performance and the demand for consistent and repeatable credentialing, privileging, proctoring processes," said Andrew G. Rowe, CEO. "Our PeerScore services offer a convenient and cost-effective way for them to implement unbiased, consistent and repeatable processes for both ongoing and focused evaluations."

Common PeerScore Features

AllMed's PeerScore solutions help hospitals and ASCs meet or exceed the intent of The Joint Commission's OPPE and FPPE standards by emphasizing physician education and performance improvement. Both services help them monitor doctors' performance across specialties and departments and, by removing conflict of interest to ensure objective, continuous, consistent and reliable evaluations of practitioner performance. PeerScore uses board-certified, actively practicing physicians who possess the same credentials and work in similar practice settings to review each physician or case.

PeerScore OPPE

PeerScore OPPE(SM) moves hospitals beyond the reactive analysis focused mostly on isolated sentinel events, by offering systematic and proactive reviews of physicians' work on an ongoing basis. By deploying PeerScore OPPE, hospitals and ASC groups can monitor their physicians' performance with summary evaluations of each physician's performance using PeerScore's numerical and color coded scoring system. PeerScore's patent-pending technology allows hospitals to benchmark and compare the performance of their practitioners to specialists at other hospitals in their group or nationally.

PeerScore OPPE helps hospitals and ASCs:

  • Evaluate their physicians' performance continuously using an external peer review workflow
  • Develop a cost-effective alternative to difficult and time-consuming data collection and analysis
  • Overcome specialist staffing constraints required for valid evaluation
  • Meet mandated accreditation standards requiring evidence-based peer review
  • Benchmark their physicians' performance against their peers within the hospital's practice or department, as well as compare its physicians nationally

PeerScore FPPE

AllMed's solution for focused reviews, PeerScore FPPE(SM), meets or exceeds The Joint Commission and other accreditation body standards for evidence-based peer review. It provides an in-depth solution for hospitals and ASCs performing focused reviews on both individual doctors and practice groups. By deploying PeerScore FPPE, organizations can gain an in-depth understanding of an individual physician's performance for a single cases and groups of cases.

Hospitals and ACSs use PeerScore FPPE for:

  • Following up on any issues identified during PeerScore OPPE case reviews
  • Credentialing new doctors
  • Re-credentialing existing doctors
  • Adding privileges
  • Managing sentinel events or other concerns objectively
  • A substitute for physician proctoring

"PeerScore OPPE and PeerScore FPPE set new standards for ongoing and focused reviews," Rowe said. "By using PeerScore, hospitals and ASCs can set not only performance benchmarks, but define expectations for all physicians and increase their accountability. In addition, PeerScore lays the foundation for implementing other initiatives, such as physician pay for performance."
