Linking Bariatric Patient Experience with the Propensity to file a Medical Malpractice Claim

We just returned from ObesityWeek in Boston where much of the discussion centered on tying patient experience to important outcomes like reimbursement and malpractice risk. Click here for a synopsis of my notes on the conference.

Significant progress has been made in linking bariatric patient satisfaction with the propensity to file a claim. Bariatric-specific patient experience surveys are essential in managing these issues by revealing such key information as:

  • Was the patient fully informed of risks and benefits?
  • Would the patient recommend their provider to another?
  • Does the patient feel included in medical decision making?

A great solution for providing a strong bariatric patient experience platform is Surgi-Protect. This new program combines malpractice coverage, risk mitigation expertise and a patient experience platform in one world-class package specifically designed for bariatric surgeons.

Thank you to all those who stopped by our booth to discuss Surgi-Protect and bariatric risk mitigation through
SE Healthcare Quality Consulting.

"We've worked with healthcare defense lawyers and bariatric experts to identify the patient experience issues that impact whether a patient engages a plaintiff lawyer, whether a plaintiff lawyer takes on a case, and whether a jury awards damages at a trial."
