"We now have the first crop of data on this important topic of diagnosis—resulting from our partnership with Harvard-based CRICO Strategies—which we've shared in a recent issue of our publication, Brink."

Client Case Studies

CRICO Strategies offers a number of risk solutions that deliver the highest degree of insight and data integrity.

Our case studies provide examples of how we work with organizations to help them pinpoint their unique vulnerabilities, accurately prioritize needs, support resourcing, and mobilize solutions that will dramatically reduce medical errors, mitigate financial loss, and minimize harm.

The publication showcase shares some of the exemplary publications our clients produce. Analysis of their claims data has enabled these organizations to provide meaningful education to their providers. 

Case Studies

Identifying vulnerabilities. Implementing Solutions. Improving Safety.

After acquiring a suburban community hospital and with plans for continued growth, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center engaged CRICO Strategies in 2012 to conduct a Risk Appraisal and Planning Process (RAP) to understand and address the patient safety implications of network expansion. Read the case study. 

medstar logoMedStar Health
After the 1999 IOM Report shone a light on the impact of medical errors in hospitals across the country, MedStar leaders sought to understand specific drivers of vulnerability in their hospitals and develop targeted interventions to improve care in high risk areas. Partnering with CRICO Strategies in 1999, MedStar Health began clinical coding and analysis of its medical professional liability (MPL) cases which has led to measurable improvements in Obstetrics and Emergency Medicine. Read the case study. 


MMIC Group

Through its partnership with CRICO Strategies, MMIC has vastly increased its ability to deliver insights and guidance that support providers in fearlessly practicing good medicine. CRICO Strategies’ tools and methodology enabled MMIC to identify vulnerabilities driving previously vexing diagnostic failure claims, providing insights guiding development of multipronged education and engagement strategies to support safer practice and reduce outpatient MPL risks. For MMIC, what’s good for care teams is good for business. Read the MMIC Case Study.
