Physician Practice Risk Assessments
Do you know the risks in your practices?
A risk assessment is a process to identify potential dangers and evaluate what could happen if one of those potential dangers became reality. For those in the healthcare industry, there are numerous dangers to take into consideration.
Antum Risk provides clients with the tools necessary to identify and pinpoint risks that are inherent to physician practice settings. Basing proactive risk management initiatives on identified areas of potential hazard, instead of past case trends, more accurately predicts and prevents future claims. Antum Risk will identify your practice’s unique risks through individualized assessments, utilizing our proprietary process and a specialized risk-audit tool that we developed and have continued to perfect over time.
Our physician practice assessments are followed by both numeric and narrative summaries of our findings and finish with a final presentation that highlights trends, outliers and resources.
We review the findings and recommendations and provide resources to mitigate the identified areas of risk. The Physician Practice Toolkit, a compilation of current best practices, sample policies and procedures, and educational materials, is just one of the tools we recommend to improve processes and reduce risk.
Goals of a Physician Practice Risk Assessment:
- Identify problem areas
- Use findings to mitigate risks before they become claims
- Improve processes by using evidence-based best practice resources and tools provided by Antum Risk
Purchasing a new physician practice?
Antum Risk offers a similar risk assessment service for medical practices that you have not yet acquired. Our pre-onboarding assessment is designed to highlight current areas of risk and will also provide a gap analysis between your practice and the pending new purchase. This process has proven to be an incredibly helpful way to gain insight into what areas need the most attention during the onboarding process, which ultimately makes the purchase and the integration as seamless as possible.
“We conduct assessments annually and use the findings to drive our physician practice performance improvement for the next year. This outside set of eyes has really allowed us to see where we need to focus and how we can make a difference for our patients. It also gives our office managers the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback in real time on issues identified during the assessment.”
