Peer review for employed physicians
January 9, 2019
Q: What can medical staff leaders do to accommodate employed physicians with regard to peer review?
Peer review is an essential activity that must apply to both employed and independent members of a medical staff. Many hospital-employed physicians are organized into multispecialty group practices that can build internal cultures highly conducive to effective peer review. This is because it is easier to create an atmosphere of collegiality around peer review when practitioners are part of the same group and share a mutual benefit from the success of each member. Because you want to avoid duplication of effort, it is important to make sure that the peer review undertaken for employed physicians is incorporated into the larger umbrella of medical staff peer review.
