Dr. Marr emphasized that effective peer review relies on a solid framework that clearly defines the peer review process and emphasizes effective leadership and a supportive culture, efficient operations, efficient evaluations, and compliance with accreditation standards. When properly executed, peer review can reduce medical errors through ongoing, objective evaluations performed in a nonpunitive, educational context that supports a healthy culture of continuous improvement. The key to effective peer review is leadership’s support for developing a strong process that is proactive in nature. Effective peer review requires a centralized multidisciplinary peer review system that utilizes a uniform method for peer review activities. According to Dr. Marr, all peer reviews should be completed within 30 days of initiation, and ideally within one week. Less than one third of survey respondents reported completion of all peer reviews of individual cases and performance concerns within 30 days of initiation. Hospitals should make arrangements to have a review conducted externally if it lacks adequate physician resources to conduct timely performance analyses.
The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year. “We are extremely pleased to be recognized and included in this elite group of leading insurance agencies from across the United States,” says Bob Shepard, President of Shepard Walton King Insurance Group. More than 1,100 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 216 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the 35-45 top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories. The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence. The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the “best” agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
