A generation or more ago, medical records were of the paper variety and in order to get your hands on someone’s file you physically needed to go to the building where the records were stored. These days most records are now in electronic format and stored on servers. This makes medical offices and hospitals subject to hacking attempts and other nefarious cyber crimes, and this means technology insurance against these situations is important to help deal with it when it happens.
The team of doctors and others that manage and run the large medical facilities should have specific insurance coverage such as directors and officers insurance to help cover legal fees and other associated costs should they come into a lawsuit from vendors, employees, investors, or others. It is also a good idea to have employment practices liability insurance to help deal with legal costs associated with lawsuits over civil rights violations, Americans with Disabilities Act violations, and others.
Crime insurance helps to cover business-related crimes, and at medical facilities there are many different crimes of opportunity that present themselves, despite the internal checks that medical facilities put in place. Theft of equipment, drugs, or other items are important to address, as is forgery that leads to obtaining items that otherwise would not be allowed. Even extortion schemes can have specific insurance issued for, such as for someone demanding treatment while using a firearm or holding patient data hostage online.
