Complaint Management Reduces Liability
A NEJM-published study revealed that half of closed claims are non-meritorious and represent $360K in settlements plus defense costs. With an annual claims rate of about 1 in 18K patients, a frivolous claim occurs in about 36K ED visits, which costs $10 per patient -- a significant prevention opportunity.
