SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MGIS Underwriting Managers, Inc. (MGIS), a leading provider of insurance products and services designed specifically for physicians, today announced a new partnership with Sequence Health to strengthen delivery and tracking of risk management measures designed to reduce the frequency, risk and cost of malpractice actions against bariatric surgeons. The Sequence technology platform's proven ability to improve patient care and reduce the risk of law suits allows MGIS PhysicianProtect™ |BARIATRIC malpractice insurance underwriters to offer premium discounts to practices successfully utilizing the system.
"MGIS is committed to incorporating the best tools and technologies for reducing bariatric surgery risks into our malpractice solution," said Jeff Brunken, President of MGIS. "The Sequence system provides bariatric practices with the opportunity to further mitigate risks, enhance patient care, and reap the benefit of lower malpractice premiums in the process."
This new Sequence Health relationship complements a partnership announced last year with OmniSure Consulting Group, Inc., which provides bariatric surgery-specific risk management strategies and tools. OmniSure's proven tools and risk mitigation measures can now be delivered and tracked more effectively through an automated, integrated system.
"Our integrated lead acquisition, patient pathway management and post-operative outcomes management patient care components provide a unique solution to address the business goals and risk management needs of bariatric surgeons," said Rich Rosenzweig, Founder of Sequence Health. "This partnership with MGIS allows surgeons to directly benefit through reduced malpractice premium costs. It's a win-win for everyone – especially the patient."
