Darwin Adds Managed Care E&O Risk Management Program

February 5, 2007

Darwin Professional Underwriters Inc. has established a comprehensive risk management and loss control program for its managed care errors and omissions (E&O) liability policyholders at no additional cost.

The services offered through Darwin’s risk management program are designed to complement and enhance each managed care policyholders’ existing risk management and loss control strategies. Included in the program is a bi- monthly e-newsletter geared towards managed care facilities and packed with current information about emerging issues, legal and regulatory changes, and recent managed care case decisions. The bi-monthly newsletter is supplemented with weekly tips on a broad range of managed care business and clinical issues. Additionally, a risk management “best practices” book, offering tips to reduce the risk of operational errors and omissions, will be provided at no cost to all managed care policyholders upon its completion.

Darwin has selected Crowell & Moring, LLP (Crowell & Moring), a Washington, D.C.-based law firm, as its partner in this initiative. Crowell & Moring’s attorneys are national leaders in the field of managed care law and are relied upon for their expertise in regulatory and compliance matters.

“Risk management and loss control are critical components to Darwin’s approach to specialty insurance,” says Susan Chmieleski, APRN, FASHRM, JD, Darwin’s vice president, risk management and client services.
