As part of MLMIC’s ongoing commitment to helping physicians and other healthcare practitioners improve the quality of patient care and reduce potential liability exposure in their practices, a new online risk management CME program, Proactive Risk Management Follow-Up Program VI (Follow-Up VI), has been developed for our policyholders and is now available at MLMIC.com.
In this program, expert physicians, healthcare attorneys, and MLMIC Claims and Risk Management representatives discuss issues in risk management currently affecting physicians, including liability risks related to the use of advertising, electronic medical records, and voice recognition software. High-exposure liability claims associated with errors in diagnosis and strategies to prevent these claims are reviewed. Challenging patient behaviors that can impact the physician-patient relationship are presented and recommendations are made to reduce potential liability exposure. Lastly, Follow-Up VI addresses recent trends in back disorder claims, including findings from the PIAA Data Sharing Project presented by their Director of Research and Risk Management.
In addition to its educational value, Follow-Up VI allows physicians to earn CME credit and eligibility to participate in the New York State excess medical malpractice insurance program.
