One Doctor’s POV
Dr. Nicholas Fogelson wrote a perspective article for KevinMD.com. He wrote about his experience as a peer reviewer for an independent review organization network. The observations hit to the heart of why third-party peer review (for payers) and physician advisor services (for providers) are vital for building efficiencies.
Here are the main categories Dr. Fogelson saw while reviewing:
- Full-spectrum medicine
- Poor documentation
- Industry acceptance of something that cannot be supported in the literature or not evidence-based.
The takeaway lessons, from Dr. Fogelson’s observations, point to two very fixable inefficiencies: better documentation and following evidence-based research for care.
