You must be a registered attendee of the NPSF 19th Annual Patient Safety Congress in order to attend this free session. Registration is required due to limited seating.



Attend this special Innovation Theater hosted by CRICO Strategies to see why the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) latest report, Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, stresses the value of data from medical malpractice insurers and what can be learned from such datasets.


The presenters will share a sneak peek of the data from the soon-to-be released CBS Report, Medication-related Malpractice Risks, which analyzed more than 3,000 medication-related malpractice cases. This session will demonstrate how you can leverage your organization's medical malpractice data in order to identify clinical risks, benchmark against peers, and engage clinical leadership.


Improved collaboration between health professional liability insurance carriers and health care professionals and organizations could help to identify resources, prioritize areas of concern, and devise interventions.

CRICO Strategies national Comparative Benchmarking System (CBS) is a database of medical malpractice (MPL) cases which currently holds nearly 400,000 MPL cases from more than 20 captive and commercial medical malpractice insurers representing more than 550 health care entities nationwide. CBS provides a unique insight into what goes wrong, and why, offering intelligence to specific risk vulnerabilities. Armed with this data, health care providers and leaders have a clear line of sight on how to change specific clinical systems or clinician behaviors and mitigate those dominant risks and reduce their malpractice exposure.
