PSQH author Susan Carr wrote, “In addition to providing members with liability coverage and claims management, CRICO has made reducing the risk of harm and improving patient safety a priority for the benefit of patients and providers of its member institutions and national clients.” She continued, “CRICO has become a leader in patient safety while continuing to serve its members’ needs by fostering a culture of safety, using data to identify risk and develop solutions, valuing professional relationships, and sharing its knowledge.”
The article not only reflects on CRICO’s early days, but also looks to the future. Carr wrote “Looking ahead from the perspective of this 40th anniversary, President & CEO Mark Reynolds sees CRICO’s strengths and resources as a good match for future challenges.”
