English term or phrase: Peer Review Organization (PRO)

Arabic translation:هيئة تدقيق أعمال الأقران
Explanation:
Peer Review Organizations are also called “Quality Improvement Organizations.” Look at this page:

http://www.hcfa.gov/quality/5b.htm

“HCFA administers the Peer Review Organization (PRO) program which is designed to monitor and improve utilization and quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries. The program consists of a national network of fifty-three PROs (also known as Quality Improvement Organizations) responsible for each U.S. state, territory, and the District of Columbia.”


The purpose of Peer Review Organizations is to monitor the administration of Medicare:

http://www.hsag.com/medicare_beneficiaries/overview/

“The current Peer Review Organization (PRO) program ensures that Medicare beneficiaries receive appropriate, high quality care and implements HCFA's health care quality improvement program (HCQIP). The PROs' focus has been on individual case review.”


Based on the above explanation, I would conclude that neither “Peer Review Organization” nor “Quality Improvement Organization” is a very descriptive name of such organizations. This makes translating the term a more challenging task, because the term as translated will inevitably sound odd. In a case like this one, a translator can do one of two things: either adhere closely to the source expression in the name of authenticity, or exercise some creativity to achieve more clarity. Whichever approach is used, the original English should probably be included to safeguard against misunderstanding.

My first recommendation is HAY’AT TADQEEQ A‘MAL AL-AQRAN, which is as obscure as the original English expression:

هيئة تدقيق أعمال الأقران

My second recommendation is HAY’AT TAHSEEN BARNAMAJ MEDICARE, which is based upon the other name mentioned above as well as the explanation given:

هيئة تحسين برنامج مديكير

In either case, I would avoid a literal translation of the word “review.”
