"As medical malpractice insurance brokers and experts in risk management, we are very aware of the cost of errors in Obstetrics," said Mary S. Botkin, Managing Director, Willis National Health Care. "Obstetrics ranks first among all specialties for the number of claims reported and for the total amount of indemnity paid. PeriGen's solutions address the root causes behind preventable medical errors, alerting clinicians to potentially significant contraindications and identifying safer courses of care. At Willis, we recognize the unique value of PeriGen's products and services in preventing errors and improving clinical outcomes, and we are proud to offer PeriGen's solutions to our clients."

PeriGen's integrated fetal monitoring, documentation, and clinical decision support systems help over 15,000 clinicians provide safer care to their patients. Additionally, PeriGen helps hospitals to improve clinical and financial outcomes through the design and implementation of risk management and patient safety initiatives, clinical quality improvement programs, perinatal training courses, business improvement programs, and revenue enhancement strategies. PeriGen's solutions are complemented by a full suite of patented, proprietary technologies, which represent the next generation of clinical decision support tools for Obstetrics. Providing real-time, interactive guidance at the patient's bedside, PeriGen's fetal monitor and OB patient record facilitate the delivery of consistent, repeatable high-quality care.

"It is common for insurance brokers to anticipate risk, but Willis is unique in its approach to claims prevention," said Donald A. Deieso, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of PeriGen. "Recognizing that the most effective guard against medical malpractice claims is high-quality, evidence-based care, Willis has chosen to arm its clients with PeriGen's sophisticated risk management and quality improvement tools. We are proud to collaborate with an insurance broker of Willis' caliber and foresight, and we are honored to have been selected to share our offerings with Willis' client base."
