Experix to Provide Risk Management and Claims Administration to Medical Professional Community Nationwide

Company is launched to meet growing demand for physician, clinic, and hospital risk management and third-party claims administration services; already serving two of Washington State’s major health care providers
 
September 16, 2013 – Seattle, WA – Experix announced today the finalization of two contracts for third-party claims administration services in Washington State along with new courses in its library of ACCME-accredited continuing medical education courses (www.experixllc.com).
 
Most physicians, clinics, and hospitals rely on their professional liability insurer for risk management consulting and education, or they use in-house resources. “We found that these physicians, clinics, and hospitals were not always getting targeted information, education, and resources,” said Mary-Lou Misrahy, CEO. “They’ve had to rely on information from companies that didn’t specialize in medical professional liability, or from hard-working but inadequately resourced internal teams. All this has put many medical practices and hospitals at greater risk from a lack of deep expertise and industry knowledge.”
 
Experix is a wholly owned subsidiary of Physicians Insurance A Mutual Company. This connection enables every Experix risk management and claims-processing service to be informed by Physicians Insurance’s 30-year history of award-winning risk management consulting and education and its data-driven claims administration.  

Experix also provides accredited continuing medical education via live seminars and online. “After researching the market, we noticed some gaps in what physicians needed – most notably specialty-specific education,” noted Misrahy. “We’re absolutely going to offer the foundational content, but also make sure that specialists have the targeted information they need.” Misrahy noted the company’s recent national launch of courses on topics such as social media in medical practices and Dr. Steven Clark’s groundbreaking work in category II fetal heart rate management.
 
Said Misrahy, “Physicians, clinics, and hospitals are constantly working to improve the practice of medicine. They’re positively impacting patient health and safety, lowering claims frequencies, and decreasing losses. Experix is going to be an essential tool in their box of resources.”
