The following documents are available in support of your peer review reporting requirements
Peer review is performed twice a year and includes reviews of both random cases and unanticipated operative sequelae using the AAAASF forms and reporting format. A random sample of the cases for each surgeon must include the first case done by each surgeon each month during the reporting period for a total of three cases per period. If a surgeon using the facility has done fewer than three cases during a reporting period, that must be reported to the AAAASF Central Office and all of that surgeon’s cases during that period must be reviewed.
There is a $100 charge per operating physician for random peer reviewed cases reported after the period closes. Late cases cannot be entered without payment.
Facilities with 10 or more physicians: your facility may report 3 random case reviews per physician. Upon doing so, facilities must submit all cases online and then submit the override form indicating this option. If any physicians have performed fewer than 3 cases during the Peer Review reporting period, please inform the AAAASF Office. Please note, ALL unanticipated sequelea must be reported.
