As a med-mal insurance executive or hospital risk manager, you’re already thinking about the liabilities and potential payouts that will arise from the current COVID-19 pandemic. And because malpractice claims are often filed years after the fact, the truth is, you may not know for a while what kind of claims are headed your way.

But the reality is these claims are coming. The question is what will they look like? Which ones will the plaintiff’s bar most likely exploit? And as an insurer or risk manager, what can you do now to help mitigate the claims you expect to see down the road?

Get answers to these questions and more when you register to attend “Forecasting Medical Liability Claims in the Age of COVID-19: How to Mitigate Risk and Reduce Payouts from Potential Negligence Claims” on Wednesday June 24, 2020. Listen as four professionals in the know — a healthcare legal expert, actuary, med-mal insurance professional, and a hospital risk manager — provide insights into the types of claims your insureds are likely to face as a result of the pandemic. And while you may not see these claims for a while, you and your insureds will need this time to develop strategies that can reduce risk and potential payouts.

Here is just some of what you’ll learn during this in-depth 90-minute conference:

• A breakdown of malpractice risks associated with the COVID-19 crisis by type of provider and steps your insureds can take to mitigate them.

• Documentation is vital, especially in a pandemic: What your insureds need to include and why.

• Why governor-granted liability protections for frontline healthcare workers might not hold up under legal challenges.

• A review of the risks that hospitals, physicians’ offices, nursing homes, and clinics need to address to safely open for patients.

• How to avoid delay-in-treatment or delay-in-diagnosis claims from patients whose procedures were postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 emergency.

• Why a slower legal system might benefit your insureds and how court closures could change the way claims are filed.

• How your insureds adoption of — or failed attempts at — telemedicine during the pandemic could create problems for them down the road.

…and much more!
