MedMal Direct Insurance Company is thrilled to announce a new partnership with MedFax™ – a leading provider of healthcare data and primary source information for physicians and surgeons across the country. MedMal Direct Chief Executive Officer, Butler Ball, says, “By leveraging this unique and ground-breaking source of physician data, we will be able to create additional value to our current and future policyholders through greater transparency and insight, allowing us to further lower the cost of insurance for thousands of physicians.”
Recent medical school graduates and/or seasoned providers are increasingly made aware of the option to work as a hospital employee; under this employment arrangement, it is important to consider professional liability exposure. From the purchase of a physician’s “tail” coverage to the choice of captive versus commercial coverage, or the joint defense of a lawsuit, all aspects of these essential components of this new risk exposure paradigm must be considered from the point of view of both the physician and hospital.
Below is yet another OCR case involving a single stolen laptop which then led to further investigation by OCR and that investigation showed a lack of policies and procedures which may have prevented this event. The lack of policies has been at the root of all major settlements and the corrective action plans instituted by the OCR is going to be a very long and “painful” process for CardioNet. These incidents are the reason all covered entities and business associates must have a Security Risk Assessment and implement policies and procedures.
