Throughout the U.S., the prevalence of medical negligence and malpractices is increasing, which has led to the creation of clear guidelines for the medical review process. Additionally, the number of active physicians and healthcare centers is rising in the country, many of whom do not possess the expertise to carry out the review themselves. All these factors are expected to drive the U.S. medical peer/external physician review services market at a healthy CAGR from 2020 to 2030. Such services are required when a doctor or healthcare entity faces allegations of misconduct or negligence, so the entire incident can be investigated and patient outcomes and safety improved for future.
