Summary

If you are unsure of an interpretation, SFUR provides any kind of form driven second read.

Over-Reads are used to make final judgments about quality of care in many quality assurance activities.

To overcome the low reliability of over-reads, input from several reviewers is often recommended to point out overlooked information or allow for reconsideration of opinions and thus improve reliability.

Rates for these reads are typically volume driven.
