Medical Economics: The evolving liability landscape and obstetrical care

Today's hospital leaders are increasingly walking a tightrope of providing high quality obstetrical (OB) care and the risks associated with medical malpractice claims. The year 2019 proved daunting as more medical malpractice batch claims emerged, and medical malpractice claims settling or obtaining jury verdicts of more than $10 million grew 84%. And now there is COVID-19. However, as the COVID-19 crisis begins to slow in certain parts of the country, risk professionals can turn their attention back to strategies to provide high quality OB care that can successfully navigate the professional liability environment.

OBHG's Heather Moore offers recommendations for hospitals revisiting their processes for mitigating OB/GYN risk in Medical Economics.
