Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

Mar / Apr 2008: Reducing Practice Risk

Reducing Practice Risk

Practicing medicine involves risk. Even the most rigorous medical training, the latest diagnostic technology, and years of experience can’t completely eliminate the risk of error, miscommunication, or unintended outcome in patient care. However, there are ways to reduce those risks.

This issue of Doctor’s Digestlooks at how physicians can structure their practices, train their staffs, equip their offices, and retool their own skills to improve patient care and minimize exposure to risk.
