Our claim consultants work closely with MMIC’s Physician Advisory Council (PAC) to review, analyze and evaluate the majority of cases. PAC members include legal advisors and physicians from multiple specialties who lend their medical expertise to improve patient care.
Physician Litigation is one of the more difficult things you may face as a health care professional — on both a legal and an emotional level.
It's designed to:
- Remove the mystery of litigation
- Help prepare you for what to expect during the legal process
- Reduce stress and anxiety by explaining what’s happening and offering resources
- Ensure you are able to successfully participate in your own defense
If an adverse event occurs at your hospital or clinic, you may receive media inquiries before your organization is prepared to answer questions about the situation.
Perhaps you are gathering information about what happened or maybe your management team needs to discuss the matter before responding to media. Having an established media protocol in place to manage crisis communications is essential.
Following a media protocol — even when there is no crisis — ensures that you respond to media inquiries in a timely and professional manner that supports the best interests of your organization’s business operations, reputation and legal position.
