Professional Standards Review Organizations


Health Economics

  • Professional standards review organizations (PSROs) were mandated under United States Public Law 92-603 to promote cost containment in hospitals by reducing ' overutilization ' while maintaining 'proper quality of care'. PSROs are locally based vetting agencies responsible for conducting reviews of the quality and appropriateness of hospital services.
