For 30 plus years, MRIoA has perfected the medical review process to meet your external review needs.

MRIoA provides nationwide medical review services for many of the country's largest insurance carriers, TPA's, PBM's, workers compensation carriers, healthcare systems, disability carriers, and state and federal review agencies. MRIoA holds dual URAC accreditations in Health Utilization Management and Independent Review Organization as well as certifications by NCQA and SSAE 16. We have extensive experience in the peer review business, and we've learned that in order to provide the premier service in the industry we must stay ahead of the curve. To do this we constantly assess and re-assess our procedures to provide maximum quality, efficiency and value to our clients. Below are a few of the results:

Faster Response Times

MRIoA offers the fastest response times in the industry. Our standard review time currently averages two business days. Our experience has allowed us to streamline every step of the review process, and through our convenient web portal and email notifications clients can track their cases from start to finish. Often our new clients are surprised at how quickly we complete their cases; and they are even more surprised to find that our quality remains at the highest possible level even on cases completed in very short time frames. This is possible because whether a case is completed the same day or within a few days it will go through our extensive quality audit process.

Online Review Services

We understand for many of our clients their primary interaction with MRIoA is over the internet. Realizing this, MRIoA's IT department has created an industry leading web portal which is HIPAA/HITECH compliant. Online users consistently rate satisfaction with the MRIoA web portal at over 95%. The site is designed to allow for intuitive navigation, streamlined case entry and quick answer retrieval. The site also provides clients the opportunity to customize their online experience. This includes tracking, monitoring and reporting of all data entered and communication with the site. Support is provided by our Account Management team with real-time assistance when needed.

Implementation Program

In 2010, MRIoA established an implementation team to transition new clients from sales discussions to submitting cases. Early in the process the implementation team will identify opportunities to interface with client systems and will establish lines of communication with the Account Management and Operations departments. Training will be provided to access MRIoA's client web portal to facilitate case referrals. The implementation team will track all cases received during the process to make sure quality and content expectations are being met. Weekly meetings are scheduled to provide ongoing oversight and discussion of client's progress through the process.
