Study Shows Providers Experience Lower Medical Malpractice Losses With MagMutual Risk Mitigation Advice

December 7, 2023

Analysis included data from more than 35,000 providers in all specialties 

ATLANTA (December 7, 2023) – Physicians who take advantage of MagMutual’s risk mitigation content and tools see a 10% reduction in medical malpractice losses, a recent investigation by the insurer’s actuarial department shows.

Overall, the study demonstrated a strong correlation between the number of advice resources physicians utilized and medical malpractice losses. It showed that for every course taken the reported loss costs decreased by 3.2%, on average.

The analysis included data from 35,796 unique providers with Physician and Surgeon Liability policies effective from 1998-2022 and covered all specialties. The segments included two groups: providers who have taken courses focused on risk mitigation or used one of MagMutual’s risk mitigation tools and providers who have done neither.

“In always putting our policyholders first, it’s important that we help them understand and mitigate their risk better than any other insurer could. The results show that our policyholders are applying the evidence-based strategies developed by our medical faculty, experiencing even better patient outcomes and seeing a tangible reduction in claims,” said Mark Poling, chief customer officer, MagMutual. 

MagMutual’s Learning Center includes more than 300 different resources focused on various subject matters, specialties and products. MagMutual continues creating evidence-based content for policyholders to reduce risk even further.
