COVERING THEIR RISKS
Epitomizing true humanity, medical profession enables healers to reach out to and improve the lives of those in need. But, it should also be remembered that it is one of the most stressful and riskiest professions in the world, especially in the context of limited healthcare infrastructure and facilities in India. AICL understands this and offers medico legal risk coverage by facilitating a better understanding of the sources of potential risk which are so many and nuanced. Risk management has two broad objectives — first is all about identifying, anticipating, and planning for contingency and setbacks; another is to bridge the gap of understanding and communication between the law and the medicine.
The growing emphasis on health and healthcare has spawned a dramatic rise in the scope of scientific knowledge and improvements in patient management, medical procedures, and management of clinical situations. Hence, the need for a safety cover for our medical care providers has emerged in parallel to these dynamics. Identifying the nature and sources of risk form an integral part of the quality and safety improvements.
However, regular insurance schemes in India are not designed to cover an individual or organization on every front. Its conventional role is limited in its scope as it only focuses on the financial aspect of damage. However, damage or loss may also include harming one’s image, goodwill, and career. It is here that AICL’s expertise comes into play to help provide a complete solution to these issues. Having resolved more than twenty thousand cases in India, AICL is widely known for its vast experience and in-depth knowledge of medical risk management. It is successfully working in more than 26 states in tandem with many medical associations across the country.
