Over the years, we have facilitated hundreds of external peer reviews and Focused Professional Practice Evaluations (FPPE) for hospitals and healthcare organizations of all sizes.
Experienced, professional, and discrete, our legal nurse consultants facilitate peer reviews of physicians across all specialties practicing in the United States. For each case, we partner with a clinically active, board-certified physician who is in the same specialty as the physician under review.

The goal of physician peer review is to evaluate an individual’s professional practice based on recognized standards. At MRN, as part of our external physician peer reviews, we provide you with clear findings and conclusions about the medical management of the case(s).
Our physician peer reviews are objective and confidential.
What triggers an FPPE or peer review? Peer reviews can be requested because of a variety of reasons, but the most common include:
Adverse Patient Incident Or Event
FPPEs are often triggered by information collected from routine data and reports, or an adverse event or outcome.
Substandard care – or perceived substandard of care – can also trigger an external peer review of a physician or even a department. An FPPE can determine the root cause of a poor outcome in a specific case and/or lead to recommendations for changes in policies and procedures.
Renewal, Revision, or Revocation Of Hospital Privileges
Hospitals often request external physician peer reviews when they’re evaluating whether to renew, revise, or revoke a physician’s privileges.
Hospitals and other healthcare organizations will request FPPEs – by randomly selecting cases – to improve the quality of care overall.
