Why Peer Review?
MMHCS recognizes that Peer Review is a requirement for FQHC as a part of Quality Assurance/performance improvement plan which should be completed once a year. It is a measure of quality of care rendered by providers. Several aspects of Peer review covered in our model of service include medical records review, patient complaints and grievances, adverse clinical outcomes and potential adverse events at inpatient or outpatient level. Peer review data is highly recommended as part of a provider’s performance evaluation and credentialing.
