Medical Risk Institute is a firm formed exclusively to provide proactive counsel to the health care community, help providers understand where liability risks originate and work to reduce or remove these risks. Their mission is to utilize their sub-specialized knowledge base and extensive expertise to a.) identify emerging threats of liability risk for physician groups and hospitals and b.) defuse these risks.

Why the Medical Risk Institute?

  • Ten percent of every dollar spent on health care is attributed to the cost of liability and defensive medicine (Price Waterhouse Coopers).
  • By age 65, 75 percent of physicians in low-risk specialties and 99 percent of those in high-risk specialties will face a claim (The New England Journal of Medicine).
  • 2013 saw 2.6 billion in health care recovery and judgments under the False Claims Act, not including the $443 million recovered by state Medicaid programs (U.S. Department of Justice).

From instructional courses and materials to in-depth audits focused upon reducing liability claims, the Medical Risk Institute’s interactive and engaging programs will give physicians and staff the skills needed for protection from liability claims for years to come.

Staying compliant with billing, privacy and employment law is essential for risk management. Medical Risk Institute offers a compliance calendar to help keep practices up-to-date with some of the highest priority compliance tasks each month – and all year long.
