Hospital Consulting/Health System Improvement
Arguably, hospitals are the most frequently targeted object of healthcare litigation. While hospital teams comprised of attorneys, risk managers and clinical staff work diligently to assimilate cases and trends, there often becomes a need to engage advanced, external support. Med Law works directly with hospitals and health systems to complement their in-house leaders, broaden internal capacity for case analysis, determine the level of exposure based on merit, and facilitate a roadmap towards prompt resolution of claims. Our hospital consulting team has worked extensively in the analysis of medically complex cases, patient safety events, surgical and peri-natal care outcomes, and identifying failures in systems and processes. We partner with health systems to bring unique expertise that is highly cost-effective and cost-saving in an era where both quality of care and financial stewardship are critical priorities.
