MedPro Celebrates Its Century Of Risk Solutions At ASHRM

In connection with the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management’s (ASHRM) 33 rd Annual Conference on October 27-30, 2013 in Austin, Medical Protective Company (MedPro), a Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK) business, is pleased to highlight its celebration of the 100-year anniversary of Protector, and the continued growth and success of its Hospital & Health System (HHS) division.

“MedPro has been dedicated to reducing risk and improving patient safety for a century,” said MedPro CEO Tim Kenesey. “This dedication is demonstrated by both our continuous publication of Protector (one of the nation’s first and longest-running healthcare malpractice risk management journals) and by our continuous commitment to delivering smart risk solutions to healthcare providers. MedPro’s unwavering commitment has been valued by our doctors for a century and--over the last decade as we have successfully built our HHS business--by Hospitals and Health Systems.”

As healthcare delivery has evolved, Protector and MedPro’s risk management services have also evolved. From robust articles with collateral tools and resources, to the opportunity for practitioners to earn continuing education credits, Protector provides healthcare providers comprehensive and diverse risk management material. It complements the hands-on risk management support and solutions delivered coast-to-coast by MedPro’s risk management professionals, and the insights and support provided by MedPro’s Specialty Advisory Boards, which are led by MedPro’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Graham Billingham, and are comprised of over 75 of the nation’s top practitioners.

“While healthcare risk management and patient safety initiatives come and go for some, Protector has remained consistently focused on prevalent and emerging risk issues and is a part of MedPro’s broad offerings of risk management expertise and insight, best practices, risk-reduction tools, proactive strategies and valuable resources,” said Theresa Essick, MedPro’s Vice President of Clinical Risk Management. “As we continue to grow our HHS division, more and more Hospitals and Health Systems are appreciating the unique value of MedPro’s smart risk management solutions.”

With over $75 million in annual premium, MedPro’s Hospital & Health System division is a national leader in providing risk solutions to hospitals and healthcare systems. From first-dollar coverage for small rural hospitals to reinsurance for large healthcare systems’ self-insured captives, MedPro does it all. Like the most sophisticated large commercial insurance operations, MedPro’s HHS division delivers self-insured retention options, reinsurance, fronted reinsurance, loss portfolio transfers, as well as captive formation, management and consulting. Unlike such commercial operations, MedPro HHS delivers its services and a century of expertise through local and customized risk management, claims, and customer service.
