Communication and malpractice

Recent research(1) has shown that communication issues are a root cause in malpractice claims.   The impact of the doctor-patient relationship is critical to not only a positive patient experience, but also reducing malpractice claims.  According to the research(1) examined, plaintiff depositions found that 71% of the malpractice claims were initiated as a result of a physician-patient relationship problem. This research also demonstrated that the most litigious patients perceived their physician as not caring, not transparent and devalued the patient’s family opinions.  The same researchers found that one out of four plaintiffs in malpractice cases reported poor delivery of medical information, with 13% citing poor listening on the part of the physician.
EASE gives you a simple but powerful tool to provide communication with patients and families, creating transparency and improving the doctor-patient relationship.  EASE has proven to reduce anxiety and impact the overall process.
