Summary:     The series contains records relating to the designation of Professional Standards Review Organizations (PSRO) from 1977 to 1979.  The PSRO's were intended to promote quality health care through the  application of suitable procedures of professional standards.  It was determined that an area wide organization could best address local needs, and thus area designations were authorized under federal law (P.L. 92-603).  In addition, federal law (P.L. 95-142) required state Medicaid agencies and the Governor's Office to review the proposals and plans.
    The series includes proposals for conditional designations and proposals for full designations.  The files include the bound proposals and some related correspondence.
