About Sham Peer Review

Sham Peer Review is when a practitioner undergoes a chart review during which “serious” deficiencies are determined to exist and “the practitioner must be prevented from being a risk to the public safety.” This is often done by a peer review committee in which its participants are immune from lawsuit thanks to the Healthcare Quality Improvement At (HCQIA) which was enacted in 1986. The practitioner is then reported to the National Practitioner Data Bank which effectively is career suicide. This is starting to reach epidemic proportions across the world leaving in its path devastated physicians.
