SurgiPROTECT™ began just over a decade ago when a group of forward thinking surgeons, risk management professionals, and liability experts envisioned a malpractice insurance program designed specifically for bariatric surgeons and their unique practices. It was developed with the goal in mind to help general surgery and bariatric programs not only manage liability and risk, but more importantly, enhance the quality of patient care and safety.
The program evolved alongside improvements and changes in the bariatric specialty and procedures, new and less invasive techniques developed, one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), was introduced, the healthcare environment changed.
Fast forward to today to SurgiPROTECT™ Insurance Program for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
SurgiPROTECT™ rewards top performing surgeons with best comprehensive coverage focused on their specialty at the best price, and helps providers to better manage their liability and enhance operational performance.
A key component of the program is the advanced and highly focused patient safety and risk mitigation program delivered by Saxton & Stump LLC in partnership with SE Healthcare, a national quality and safety company focused on surgical specialties including general and bariatric surgery.
This program focuses on a set of specialty-specific survey platforms and tools created to mitigate risk and enhance operational performance by creating the ability to mitigate risk and enhance the bottom line, improve reputation and the ability to negotiate higher reimbursement from payors.
SurgiPROTECT™ provides a unique opportunity for metabolic and bariatric surgeons to receive the risk and safety support they need to prevent lawsuits and improve their risk, reputation and practice economics, all while receiving enhanced coverages from an experienced strong MPL Insurer.
