NYCHSRO/MedReview was among the first organizations registered as a certified Utilization Review (UR) agent in New York when UR registration began in 1997 and it achieved PRO-like entity status in 1995. That designation was updated to a QIO-like entity in 2008. The QIO-like entity status means that NYCHSRO/MedReview is a physician-access organization that has:

  • Access to doctors of medicine or osteopathy, licensed and practicing in the State, to conduct review for the organization,
  • Availability of at least one physician, licensed in the State, from every generally recognized specialty and subspecialty who is actively practicing in the area they review , and
  • NYCHSRO/MedReview is not a health care facility, health care facility association, or health care facility affiliate.

NYCHSRO/MedReview is accredited by URAC as an Independent Review Organization (IRO) and as a Health Utilization Management (HUM) organization. NYCHSRO/MedReview only uses medical professionals who are licensed and registered in their specific disciplines. Over the past twenty years, NYCHSRO/MedReview has conducted over 2 million peer reviews to evaluate clinical decisions and services rendered by medical practitioners at all levels of the health care continuum. NYCHSRO/MedReview maintains a physician review panel of more than 100 clinicians, in 74 specialties and subspecialties.

Presently, NYCHSRO/MedReview has its headquarters in New York City, with a new office recently established in Massachusetts. As NYCHSRO/MedReview’s services are provided around the country, it is anticipated that additional offices will be established to facilitate provision of service to those local markets.
