2012 will mark the 13th annual report by Aon and ASHRM regarding the professional liability costs faced by healthcare organizations. This year's report will lead with the 10-year history (2002-2011) of hospital professional liability results. Trends during the 10 years include a dramatic reduction of claims from 2002-2006, an increase in claim costs coinciding with the recession of 2008, and a cost containment or "flat" trend since 2008. The study also will provide survey responses from healthcare risk managers describing the strengths and weaknesses of an overall risk management program. These scores can be compared to other industries outside of healthcare to highlight areas where healthcare risk management is strong as well as areas where it has an opportunity to make improvements.
