Chaudhry, H., Jamil, O., Beidas, AK. et al. Curr Radiol Rep (2018) 6: 31. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40134-018-0292-6
Purpose of review
To review and contrast varying methods of peer assessment driven practice quality improvement programs in radiology with an emphasis on peer review and peer learning.
Review of the literature revealed that the current consensus is that a shift away from the original peer review system toward a peer learning process has the most beneficial effects for organizations seeking to maximally improve performance. This requires altering perceptions towards the peer review process itself, and significant time, effort, and resources.
The transition to a peer learning process is a necessity to advance the field of radiology into an era of delivering near faultless quality health care.
