For years, MedPro Group has been the expert on risk management and patient safety issues. We believe that a strong risk management program is capable of reducing patient harm, improving quality of care and patient satisfaction, and protecting insureds from liability exposure.
MedPro Group's strong tradition of risk management includes comprehensive solutions that are designed to help insureds improve patient safety and minimize risk. Through our services, we strive to increase policyholders' awareness of potential safety and risk issues, assist in prioritizing action items, and work with insureds to demonstrate measurable improvement.
Our long-term insureds stay with us because they recognize we're committed — not just to defending them in court, but to keeping them from ever seeing a courtroom.
