Health System Improvement: How Downstream Insights Inform Upstream Care
While some companies provide only medical-legal claims assessment, Med Law has the expertise to capture vital information derived through extensive data collection, discern trends, identify system defects, and advise strategic options to improve patient outcomes.
The end of litigation offers a natural point for defendants and their counsel to pause and reflect on the matter at hand.
In the context of medical malpractice litigation, such reflection can offer health care organizations invaluable insight that in turn helps them improve patient care and outcomes in the future.
It’s so important that, as part of a client’s full-spectrum engagement of Med Law Advisory Partners, clients receive a report at the conclusion of litigation detailing intelligence they can immediately put to use to limit their exposure to future liability.
During litigation, Med Law’s consulting nurse experts work with health systems to complement their in-house risk and legal teams, evaluate the circumstances leading to medical malpractice claims, examine delivery of care for appropriateness and develop a course of action to facilitate prompt resolution.
Their specialized medical-legal knowledge allows them to discern areas of concern in a health system that might otherwise go unnoticed or overlooked.
