Physician Peer Review



Our unique physician peer review program focuses on case-based learning to promote improvements in patient safety and quality of care using a collaborative process bringing physicians together virtually. The program is an “internal” process with your own physicians participating in the review process. Case-based learning allows physicians to improve their own skills and knowledge by studying actual medical cases. We use e-technology and teleconferencing with physicians of like specialties to discuss patient care. The internal process promotes a “just culture” and reduces or eliminates potential conflict of interest.

The program assists in meeting regulatory, compliance and accreditation standards while enhancing patient safety and quality of care. The program helps meet requirements for Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation.

Medical records are evaluated for compliance with National Patient Safety goals.

Outcomes can be benchmarked by individual and facility. This allows benchmarking among individual providers and participating healthcare facilities.

Physicians can earn continuing medical education (CME) credits for each committee meeting and ethics CMEs for each ethical discussion. Family practice reviews are approved by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Effective September 1, 2021, The Rural Physician Peer Review Hybrid Program has two tracks for reviews:

  • Traditional committee meeting track requires physicians to attend peer review meetings each month.
  • Direct Review track eliminates the need for required facility physician participation as medical records are reviewed by internal ARCHI physician team.

  • Family Medicine
  • Family Medicine (OB)
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • General Surgery
  • Internal Medicine
  • Pediatrics
