Lake Zurich, IL (PRWEB) July 27, 2010
According to a recent report, “The Rising Medical Malpractice Claims and a Practical Solution,” 56 percent of Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in 12 malpractice claim “crisis states” have begun to refuse to cover some high risk surgeries. As the number of medical malpractice claims continue to skyrocket, it is increasingly difficult for doctors to find affordable liability insurance plans. Paule Delaney, vice president of Business Development for VizVOCUS Inc. contends a simple procedure will help the complex crisis - digital video recorded surgeries.
“The decision to make digital video recorded surgeries standard procedure will be driven either by the surgeons, by the insurance companies, or both,” Delaney said. “Insurance companies may institute a policy whereby they will only insure surgeons who are willing to document all surgeries on video. Alternatively, they may offer lower premiums to surgeons who document their surgeries on video.”
According to the report, a Gallup poll published by the National Journal indicates 57 percent of adult Americans feel there are too many lawsuits against doctors, and 74 percent feel that we are facing a major crisis regarding medical liability in health care today.
“Many surgeons (especially in the more litigious states) are more likely to take the initiative and purchasing the i.HD Camera System to protect themselves from frivolous malpractice lawsuits,” Delaney said.
VizVOCUS is the manufacturer of a successful line of “plug and play” digital cameras designed for surgical and dental use.
