Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
AHA Solutions, Inc. today announced it has issued a Request for Information (RFI) invitation to Professional Liability & Claims Management solutions providers wishing to be considered for the exclusive Endorsement of the American Hospital Association (AHA). AHA Solutions, a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that support member hospitals and care organizations in their efforts to achieve of operational excellence.
Professional Claims & Liability Management plays a key role in helping hospitals and care systems achieve operational excellence. As the professional liability insurance crisis peaked, many health care organizations turned to alternative risk transfer programs. These programs have proved an affordable option. As a result, however, claims management historically controlled by commercial carriers is now the immediate organizational challenge of care systems. AHA Solutions has responded by analyzing providers of Professional Liability & Claims Management solutions.
According to Mike Albion, Assistant Vice President, Strategic Alliances, AHA Solutions, Inc. “Our investigation of potential Partners has begun in order to connect care providers with the tools required for effective, efficient and economical claims management. Hospitals require keen understanding of their unique needs. Therefore, we are now seeking candidates with the capacity to work closely with care organizations and insurance brokers to develop the claims administration plan; prepare required state filings; ensure regulatory compliance; work to avoid litigation; and, if litigation becomes necessary, to minimize loss. Candidates seeking the AHA’s exclusive Endorsement should demonstrate the capacity and ability to fulfill these responsibilities.”
