Willis Group Holdings and The Sullivan Group announced the creation of a strategic alliance to provide Willis health care clients with additional and enhanced clinical risk management products and services.
The Sullivan Group was founded by President and CEO Dan Sullivan, MD, JD to help the health care industry establish best practices, enhance patient safety, and reduce medical errors and the resulting exposure to malpractice litigation. The Sullivan Group developed a systematic approach to risk management and patient safety in the emergency department, including bedside risk management tools to improve patient safety. Those same approaches will be utilized in future risk management products and services for the medical specialties of primary care and others.
“Willis’ alliance with The Sullivan Group helps us deliver risk mitigation services to physician groups, a segment of the healthcare industry where we are seeking to expand our presence,” said Willis Health Care Practice leader Kevin Downs.
Commenting on the alliance, Dr. Sullivan said, “Willis has demonstrated a keen awareness of the most vital issues in patient safety, quality and health care risk management. Their knowledge of the risk management challenges faced by the healthcare industry will enhance our products and programs.”
