Massachusetts Medical Society: Model Principles for Medical Peer & Professional Review

Model Principles for Medical Peer & Professional Review

Review of physician performance by peers is a time-honored way of improving patient care and achieving accountability. As a learned profession, medicine and physicians have been entrusted by the public with the responsibility of self-regulation. The public wants to be assured that the profession is doing all it can for quality improvement, and physicians want the process of peer review to be objective, effective, and fair.

It is with this goal in mind that the Massachusetts Medical Society has developed Model Principles for Medical Peer Review of Physicians for Health Care Facilities and Medical Professional Review of Physicians within Health Insurance Companies. These policies replace our prior peer review principles.
