In our Risk Management and Patient Safety Focused Review case studies, CAP’s team of risk managers and patient safety specialists offer insights into the top issues and challenges experienced by our members based on a thorough analysis of data and information gathered from CAP closed claims, hotline calls, CAP Cares calls, and practice surveys.
These studies have been designed for use as a risk management tool to educate practitioners of all specialties and practice settings regarding common risk trends in a specific specialty group. Each focused review contains pertinent education via clinical case reviews, best practice guidelines, and actionable strategies to reduce risk.
The well-being of CAP members and their patients remains a priority for our team of risk managers and patient safety specialists, who are committed to providing easily accessible resources and publications designed to improve healthcare, patient safety, and reduce your medical liability risk.
CAP members receive medical liability protection from the Mutual Protection Trust (MPT). Since 2006, MPT has earned A.M. Best Company′s A+ (Superior) rating, demonstrating MPT′s financial strength and its ability to meet ongoing coverage and contractual obligations.
The Mutual Protection Trust (MPT) is authorized under Section 1280.7 of the California Insurance Code as an unincorporated interindemnity arrangement among physician members of the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. (CAP). Members do not pay insurance premiums. Instead, they pay tax-deductible assessments, based on risk classifications, for the amount necessary to pay claims and administrative costs. No assurance can be given as to the amount or frequency of assessments. Members also make a tax-deductible Initial Trust Deposit, which is refundable according to the terms of the MPT Agreement. ©
