Peer review coordinator job description

Keeping track of the steps of the peer review process can be just as daunting for MSPs as the actual process is for physicians under review. There are many steps to remember, and it is of the utmost importance that each step is followed to prevent legal action by physicians challenging the process. Many organizations have discovered that designating a peer review coordinator who can dedicate all of his or her attention to the task helps ensure a successful and efficient peer review process. The peer review coordinator is commonly tasked with the following:

  • Preparing cases for peer review
  • Making sure files are passed along to the proper hands
  • Ensuring physicians are notified that they are or were under review
