MAPSS Program From MAI Backed by Major Independent Wholesale Brokerage Firm

MAPSS, the premier patient safety program based on ISO standards, achieves more value for healthcare facilities by securing insurance premium discounts from Casualty & Surety, Inc. (CSI).

LUGOFF, S.C., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- MAI has reached a major milestone by creating a strategic partnership with Casualty & Surety, Inc. (CSI). This new agreement helps to both increase patient safety and reduce insurance premiums for healthcare and assisted living facilities. This breakthrough is based upon the establishment of premium discounts given to institutions that have incorporated the MAPSS risk management program.

The MAPSS model is designed to provide healthcare institutions with a front-end risk management tool capable of eliminating the occurrence of events that cause medical errors. MAPSS utilizes the ISO 9001:2000 family of standards and Six Sigma methodology to create a transparent platform in the facility that will prevent adverse events from occurring. A clear and demonstrated reduction in adverse patient incidents allows CSI to feel confident in providing premium discounts for institutions that follow the MAPSS program. Smaller institutions can expect to receive a 15% discount while larger facilities could see 20% and greater discounts on premiums with CSI.

"We have plenty of statistics from facilities that use MAPSS to prove the program has a demonstrated reduction of incidents, which can encourage insurance premium reductions," said Barry Julian, President of MAI, "but now we have a major strategic partner capable of offering discounts specifically based upon results from our risk management program."

MAPSS can be tailored to fit the needs of any institution, from small Assisted Care Facilities to large multihospital systems and can help reduce incidents in virtually every department from admissions to administration.
