"Our Peer to Peer Review program's objective is education on appropriateimaging service required based on diagnosis and the treating physician'sexpectation from this diagnostic tool," said Dr. Philip Kivitz, Care to Care'sChief Medical Officer. "Our Radiologist Reviewers are unique at the firstlevel of review and speak to prescribing physicians when an alternate test isrecommended. In addition, we seek mutual agreement on withdrawal of arequested test rather than denial," said Dr. Kivitz. "This places theprescribing physicians and peer reviewer radiologists in a partnership thusproviding the best practice for the plan member."
"We believe Radiologist Peer Reviewers are the key to a successfulutilization management program given their expertise with this high-techever-evolving technology," said Martin Farbenblum, Chairman of the Board.
