A study prepared by Aon Risk Solutions and the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (ASHRM) showed that the frequency of medical malpractice has been growing by only 2.5% annually and is expected to remain flat next year. The study was presented on Tuesday, October 29 at ASHRM’s annual conference in Austin, Texas.
According to their presentation, the 2.5% in annual medical malpractice severity growth rate is one of the lowest rates in the report’s 14-year history.
Erik Johnson, an Aon Risk Solutions leader and the study’s main author, said the predominant risks for the industry regarding this kind of data “are fairly under control and stable.”
