The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research has released a new 16-hour online course titled “Insuring Healthcare Providers”. The course takes place via live instructor-led webinars on September 14 to 23. Registration is now open via the alliance’s website

Part of the alliance’s specialty education PROFocus courses, this advanced course is designed for risk managers, producers, agency owners, and company personnel who are responsible for protecting the property and casualty loss exposures that medical professionals, hospitals, clinics, and/or long-term care facilities face.

The unique risk management areas, liability and property coverage, and special underwriting problems found in the healthcare industry make this course particularly suited to those involved in handling the risk management and property/casualty insurance issues of this segment.

The course will include discussion and examination of insuring healthcare risks, insuring hospitals, medical malpractice and insuring healthcare professionals and organisations, and evolving risk management strategies and tactics for 2020.

Paul Martin, the alliance’s academic director of commercial topics, said: “The upcoming healthcare industry PROFocus programme series provides industry professionals with a unique opportunity to examine the risk management practices and insurance solutions that meet the needs of healthcare organisations.

“It covers the broad spectrum of the healthcare industry—from a local physician’s practice to diagnostic and treatment clinics, to large urban hospital organisations.

“Participants will learn about risk management principles that hospitals understand and deploy in their operations worldwide. This programme delivers what you won’t get anywhere else.”
