Risk Mapping

Your healthcare environment is exposed to professional liability risks. Risk Mapping® is an on-site risk assessment program conducted by experienced ProAssurance Risk Resource Advisors. Understanding your unique risk exposure is a critical step toward helping provide safer practices for your patients and your organization.

Improving Patient Outcomes in Your Organization

Reducing your risk is imperative to building a successful healthcare professional liability insurance program. Our team of experienced Risk Resource Advisors can help enhance patient safety and may help reduce the likelihood of medical incidents that lead to lawsuits. Risk Mapping helps your organization improve your existing risk-reduction strategies and patient safety activities—at no additional cost.

Our ProAssurance Risk Mapping program involves a detailed, on-site risk assessment, designed to be completed routinely for hospitals and facilities, with focused service line assessments available.

The survey addresses:

  • Patient safety
    • High-risk clinical departments
    • Medication administration
  • Organizational leadership—effective communication, culture assessment
  • Risk/quality management
    • Disclosure of unexpected outcomes
    • Privilege and confidentiality of peer review, and risk and quality documents
  • Departmental care
    • Emergency Services
    • Obstetrics
    • Surgery
  • Staff competency
  • Credentialing of medical staff
  • Protecting health information

The assessment process will also include:

  • Interviews with administrative, clinical, or medical personnel leadership staff
  • A review of medical records, policies and procedures, or other documents
  • An analysis of quality improvement activities and plans
  • Scheduled visits to certain areas or departments within your hospital or facility

A Risk Resource Advisor will discuss preliminary findings with your facility’s leadership at the conclusion of the assessment and listen to your important input. You also will receive a follow-up report to assist your organization’s ongoing quality-improvement activities. ProAssurance provides a single-source solution with flexible options to help you make things simpler—that’s only fair.
