A healthcare professional liability insurer released a risk analysis tool for free, with data drawn from closed malpractice claims to identify the greatest malpractice risks by specialty.
Boston-based Coverys offers its Risk Analytics Dashboard online at: https://dashboard.coverys.com/. The tool shows the areas of greatest risk based on medical professional liability claims data to help healthcare providers understand and minimize common risks and reasons behind such events. The dashboard analyzes the insurer’s data from more than 14,000 malpractice claims since 2011 in a variety of clinical specialties.
The dashboard analyzes claims in specialties, including emergency medicine, anesthesia, general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedic and podiatric surgery, pediatrics, radiology, general, vascular, and thoracic surgery. It offers insights related to risk management issues, allegations, or reasons for claims, and an overview of finances associated with each specialty.
