Hospitals typically pay $1,000 to $5,000 for each independent peer review performed by consulting firms that employ physician reviewers. This process is not only expensive, but is also manual. Therefore hospitals typically handle peer review processes internally, except for limited circumstances relating to cases with heighten financial or legal risk. Medprex provides a low-cost alternative ($25 fee for per audit and $50 fee per case, plus reviewer stipends) that allows hospitals to exchange review submissions on our secure platform for timely independent peer reviews.
