A peer review process was encouraged by a National Veterans Health Administration internal review team as a way to assess quality of care and documentation and also promote improvements in nursing care, collegiality, and job satisfaction. The first step in the development of a peer review process was a literature review and policy development. A Peer Review Committee was formed and used evidence to develop a policy that was used to develop a peer review process. The committee used an effective group change model to educate and acquire the acceptance of the Rocky Mountain Region Home Telehealth team regarding peer review. The policy received approval and the process was piloted by the Peer Review Committee.
