Case frequency is down, costs are up, and $1M payments are more common. Those are just a few significant findings from the 2018 National Benchmarking Report, Medical Malpractice in America.
Powered by Candello (formerly called the Comparative Benchmarking System (CBS)), Medical Malpractice in America analyzes 124,000 cases from 2007–2016: what failed, why, and changes in vulnerabilities over time. Ten-year trends in case frequency, indemnity, and expenses are presented along with exploration of the clinical aspects of malpractice claims and suits.
Michael Paskavitz, Assistant Vice President of Candello (formerly called CRICO Strategies), shares three reasons why health care leaders should read this report.
