Next Generation Physician Peer Review

NorthGauge takes pride in the trust placed in us by healthcare professionals from coast to coast. For over a decade, we have worked closely with hospitals, health systems, attorneys and consultants on a wide variety of peer review matters. We acutely understand that peer review should not be a mechanical process and requires a company that does more than sending records to doctors and providing reports. Our experts recognize that no two engagements are the same and preferences can vary, we listen carefully and take a strategic, consultative, custom approach to every project. Peer review is complex and difficult and mistakes come at a high price. With the experience and expertise of NorthGauge, high integrity, defensible physician peer review isn’t just possible, it’s the rule.
