RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)


The authors closely analyze a case in which a Peer Review Organization cited a physician for treatment with potential for significant adverse effect. They also critique the regulatory scheme under which peer review occurs and conclude that such regulation interferes with physicians' primary obligations, fails to encourage cost-effective behavior and may decrease the quality of medical care.
