How do you provide proper insurance: the right type of clinical research liability insurance for your clinical research organization? Doesn’t the Pharmaceutical or Manufacturer provide indemnification clauses that cover the research organizations?
What if you are a clinical research organization that employs three investigators: (each an M.D. or D.O.) and many independently contracted sub investigators; Some of these (a combination of mid levels (NP’s, CNM’s and PA’s).
When physicians are requested to provide protected (or seemingly protected) health information to Pharmacies, Hospitals, or other Health care organizations...Which, naturally runs counter to your trained method of protecting that information and storing it securely.
Pharmacies are increasingly demanding patients' personal health information before filling prescriptions.
Are Pharmacies playing a heavy hand?
Seems like a conflict reminiscent of the pharmacies refusing to fill birth control prescriptions for unmarried women.
There are now laws in place prohibiting that kind of discrimination. Now, the opioid crisis is initiating action that conflicts with protection. Pharmacies need to protect patients...Pharmacists tell patients that physician have to send their records to the pharmacy before they'll dispense. But, if the physician releases the information are they opening themselves up to a Hipaa violation, with civil fines and penalties:
A common question that we are asked at The Doctors Insurance Agency – (an agency for The Doctors Company) and a national broker for medical professional liability insurance is in regards to whether a physician needs to purchase a separate Medical Director Liability Insurance Policy. If you are asked to sign a contract as medical director for an Assisted Living Facilities, Pathology Labs, Endoscopy Labs, Medical Spas and other similar health care organization, you might be asked to provide your own medical director liability insurance policy.
You may need one (regardless of whether the organization carries their own liability policy); the key to understanding whether you need to purchase your own is understanding the contract language in the Medical Professional Liability Insurance Policy for the healthcare organization.
We are often asked if the medical professional liability insurance policy that ‘covers’ the health care organization also provides liability cover for the Medical Director.
Physician Owned Medical Malpractice, Medical Professional liability Insurance looks at where we are are today: trends, challenges:
The Physicians Insurance Association meets annually with each of its specialty medical professional liability carriers to discuss growth and expense (payout) trends and other medical business dynamics that affect the future of these often smaller (relatively) medical malpractice insurance carriers.
Dr. Richard Anderson is the Chair of the Physicians Insurance Association; he shared his unique hard earned insights into the business of defending and protecting doctors from malpractice claims and the future of financing and defending them.
