2019 Cayman Captive Forum
12/4/2019 12:00 AM Session: CCF2019.060 (3:00pm to 3:45pm) / Track A
Topic: Radiology malpractice claims continue to rise. Approximately 70% of radiologists will face a malpractice claim during their career and more than 50% will be sued at least once by age 60. 80% of these claims involve misinterpretation of clinical tests and failure to diagnose. Frequently the delay in diagnosis results in delay in treatment of progressive diseases, such as cancer, and the potential monetary exposure can be very high. The many unique issues with respect to radiology claims, and teleradiology, will be addressed by the panel, including best practices/strategies to mitigate exposure and manage risk with examples given.
Speaker: • Panelists: Laurel Byerly, Esq., Executive Vice President (Western Litigation); Carol Doty, Esq., Partner (Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan LLP); Eileen Shanley, Vice President of Captive Management / Owner (Steward Health Care) • Panel Discussion: Do You See What I See?
