Providing effective external peer review is an essential element in the overall success of any healthcare facility. Recognizing that hospital and medical staffs have the responsibility to maintain high-quality standards, Physician's Review Organization of Michigan (PROM) has developed a peer review policy and approach to meet those standards.
PROM is a URAC accredited external review organization, founded in 1983 by the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS). Since that time, PROM has separated from MSMS to become an independent organization that still enjoys the support of the medical society but maintains its separate, independent status. Utilizing the expertise of its experienced staff and carefully selected board-certified reviewers, PROM ensures that clients receive informed, confidential, and objective reviews.
With the increasing scrutiny of medical errors, physician peer review continues to be essential in the evaluation of patient care and safety. Physician participation in the evaluation process through PROM ensures that only competent physicians can review medical decisions of their peers. MSMS encourages physicians to participate with peer review in their hospitals and for independent review organizations such as PROM.
"If we physicians do not perform peer reviews, someone else will", said PROM chair Willard S. Stawski, MD. "It is our professional responsibility to step up and participate."
