Risk management efforts at Preferred Physicians Medical (PPM) highlight our anesthesia expertise. PPM maintains a substantial database of loss outcomes based on our investigation of over 16,000 adverse anesthesia events. PPM uses this database to identify areas of risk, monitor developing loss trends and provide anesthesia practices with practical, anesthesia-specific patient safety and risk management strategies.
The Risk Management Newsletter for Anesthesiologists. Learn about the latest risk management trends and read about recent jury verdicts. Read the current issue of Anesthesia & the Law.
Past issues of Anesthesia & the Law are available exclusively to PPM policyholders.
Risk management discussion papers, sample informed consent forms, practice protocols and useful links to anesthesia literature are available exclusively to our policyholders. [Risk Management Resources]
Our on-site and online video conference risk management programs address very specific anesthesia practice concerns; no multi-specialty medical issues, no generic lectures. PPM's in-house claims attorneys conduct approximately 30 risk management programs annually. Since 2002, PPM has conducted over 500 anesthesia-specific risk management seminars for PPM insured anesthesia practice groups. [Risk Management Seminars]
