AIG study shows hospital C-Suite and Risk Managers struggle with maintaining patient safety
Date:4/19/2013

o better understand and ultimately improve healthcare outcomes for patients and hospitals.

"Given that nearly half of every dollar spent on healthcare costs is related to a medical error, improvements in patient safety will provide a quick return on investment," said Emily Rhinehart, RN, MPH Vice President and Division Manager for Healthcare Risk Consulting, AIG.

AIG insures over 2,000 hospitals worldwide, employs more than 250 full-time doctors and nurses, and provides workers' compensation insurance in the United States, through employers, to nearly 10 million employees.

"When insurers work to understand and improve overall healthcare outcomes, it results in patients who: experience less pain, quicker recovery time, and fewer medical complications; return to their family and to work sooner; and are prescribed the right amount and type of medication, for the right amount of time," said AIG Casualty's Russell Johnston. "Prevention doesn't cost. It pays."
