REVIEWS

With the largest independent physician review panel available in the industry, our Board Certified physicians and licensed healthcare professionals cover an extensive list of medical specialties and sub-specialties, and serve all 50 states. Our physicians have real-time access to clinical and regulatory information, leveraging AMR’s proprietary database of reviews through our workflow technology. We serve as both an adjunct to internal decision making processes and are fully compliant with the state and federal external workflows.

Overuse of medications can inhibit patient wellness. Our Pharmacy Benefit Reviews take into consideration drug price, utilization and appropriateness of medications within the scope of the treatment plan. Our team of qualified specialists and physicians make sure that the medications being prescribed are needed and providing a benefit to the course of treatment. We focus on the patient and the desired outcome while ensuring the right drug, at the right amount, providing the right treatment. 

As a recognized URAC accredited UM company, we understand the role that utilization management has in quality patient care. Utilization management when done using an evidence-based approach can uncover excessive treatment and expense while enhancing the quality and effectiveness of patient care. The goal in our review process is to make sure that patients are getting the care they need when they need it.

Healthcare can be a fickle business. It can bring us the happiest moments of our lives as well as the most devastating. No matter whom you are, young, old, rich, poor, you have had to deal with health problems either of your own or someone close to you, and with those health problems come medical care and possible medical disputes.

Mornings for me begin with the same routine almost every day of the year. I wake up, start the coffee maker, sign on to my computer for work, and catch up on emails. Although I treat my mornings the same, I am inspired to treat every case I process at work individually and carefully because I believe every patient deserves quality healthcare. READ MORE

The team at Advanced Medical Reviews (AMR) is a talented and diverse group of individuals who all work with the same intention that everyone deserves quality healthcare.
