As the endorsed carrier of the society for Hospital Medicine, The Doctors Company is developing a lot of specific knowledge and is thereby now able to pass on successful strategies to avoid claims. The Doctors Company with its 75,000 member physicians can study claims trends in order to help their physician policyholders.
Risk Management in Hospitalist Medicine:
Recently in The Doctors Company quarterly newsletter called The Advocate, they provided an analysis of hospitalist claims. Because of the number of doctors insured, they have a wide base of extensive data which allows them to study and share information in the interest of practicing better medicine. When a society endorses The Doctors Company one of the commitments The Doctors Company makes is to discuss procedures, techniques, treatments, and technology that can help avoid injury and contribute to the practice of better medicine.
