As reinsurance brokers, we spend much of our time discussing the travails of severe obstetric complications. We have witnessed how CRICO’s measurement and analysis of obstetrical medical malpractice incidents empower their ability to engage its insured practitioners in structured interventions to improve practice. As a result, we’ve seen CRICO’s obstetrical case rate decline. CRICO’s approach has greatly improved patient safety, and as a result has lowered the risk of medical malpractice.
