What other products does Positive Physicians offer?
The keystone of Positive’s risk management program is its partnership with our insured groups.
In the Integrated Risk Plan, each of our groups is requested to appoint a “Risk Coordinator” from within their ranks.
We train the Risk Coordinator to identify and report Potentially Compensable Events to our Risk Manager who in turn works with the group to handle the event and use every means possible to decompress the event.
This process improves the Quality of Care and Patient Satisfaction at no cost to the insureds.
In addition we offer “Lunch n' Learn” sessions which allow onsite face to face learning and discussion sessions between our Risk Management Coordinator and staff.
