insurance for ambulatory health care providers

Ambulatory Health Care

Westwood will ensure your Ambulatory Health Care practice has adequate insurance coverage for every threat you could face.

why do ambulatory health care providers need insurance?

Ambulatory health care providers need insurance due to the inherent risks associated with delivering medical services outside a traditional hospital setting.

Treating patients in their homes or other locations, while reducing the need for long trips back to hospital after treatment, introduces specific risks that may result in malpractice claims. For instance, diagnostic errors or incorrect treatment could result from the limited setting compared to a hospital, procedural mistakes during minor surgeries or treatments, and medication errors are also a possibility.

There’s also the risk of inadequate follow-up care and miscommunication between ambulatory care providers and primary care physicians, which can lead to complications or worsening conditions for patients. These risks necessitate comprehensive insurance coverage to protect against potential claims and ensure the continuity of care.
