Anesthesia Specialty Report

Anesthesia Specialty Report

Using sophisticated data analysis, MedPro Group's Patient Safety & Risk Solutions (PS&RS) Team is able to provide education about claim frequencies, common allegations, trends, and causative factors across provider types and within specialties.

The Anesthesia Specialty Report is the first publication in PS&RS's series of specialty data reports. It offers an analysis of aggregated data from MedPro Group anesthesiology claims opened between 2003 and 2012. Analysis is focused on cases involving traditional anesthesia services; the report does not include pain management claims. Additionally, data are based on claim counts, not on dollars paid (unless otherwise noted).

The Anesthesia Specialty Report is designed to provide MedPro Group insureds with detailed claims data and increase awareness of the factors that trigger or contribute to malpractice claims. PS&RS hopes that the information provided in the report will help insureds purposefully focus their risk management and patient safety efforts.
