Attorneys Provide Guidance to Healthcare Risk Managers


On October 11, Ann Barron, Richard Hunsaker, and Andy Roth presented “The Nuts & Bolts of Risk Management: Claims Management 101” to the Chicago Healthcare Risk Management Society (CHRMS) and the Illinois Society of Healthcare Risk Managers (ISHRM). The webinar focused on risk management issues that arise in day-to-day operations at hospitals and other medical facilities. The presenters offered practical advice of what risk managers should do when presented with a claim or a potential claim, which covered collection of records and settling the claim. Heyl Royster is a sponsor of both CHRMS and ISHRM, and Ann Barron serves on the Board of ISHRM. Barron, Hunsaker, and Roth are all active in the firm’s Professional Liability Practice’s Client Education program, which offers legal updates and claim handling seminars to the firm’s clients located throughout the Midwest. Anyone interested in this program should contact Richard Hunsaker (Edwardsville) or Mark Hansen (Peoria).
