Patient Safety and Risk Management

How MIEC helps your practice improve patient safety and reduce risk.

MIEC offers a variety of Patient Safety and Risk Management (PSRM) services which are practice-specific and supportive of our members’ self-determined risk management and quality improvement initiatives.

Practice Surveys — We offer in-depth assessments of existing internal operations and practice systems, including a review of documentation practices, office policies, quality improvement programs, and general areas of operation. Surveys are accompanied by a written report of our findings, and any recommendations to improve patient safety and minimize risk.
