HANYS and MLMIC Collaborate, With Aim to Reduce Patient Harm
HANYS and Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company (MLMIC) announced this week their collaboration to conduct an in-depth analysis of claims data. This effort will explore potential linkages between patient safety protocols, patient health outcomes, and adverse events.
Averting the consequences of an adverse event for patients and the economic and professional impact for physicians, hospitals, and all other healthcare provider organizations are a high priority for HANYS, our members, and MLMIC, an insurer of many of these practitioners and organizations.
“We are hopeful that this analysis will provide valuable insight and best practices for providers across New York to improve risk mitigation and patient safety. Over time, improvements in patient safety could reduce medical malpractice claims and in turn, serve to counter medical malpractice premium inflation,” said HANYS President Bea Grause.
