Swiss Re Corporate Solutions Healthcare Risk Management Update

Episode 1: Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) 2015 Update

For many US hospitals, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) creates compliance challenges. Even though 2016 marks the law's 30th anniversary, several hundred violations are cited in US hospitals each year. These violations can involve monetary fines. Since 2008, financial penalties have cost American hospitals over $3million.

Your hospital doesn’t have to be one of them. Although EMTALA compliance can cause frustration, there are steps you can take to stay within the law. In our Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley, VP of Healthcare Risk Engineering at Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, explains how. He discusses hospital obligations under EMTALA along with recent EMTALA enforcement trends and compliance challenges. He also shares risk strategies to mitigate exposure to violations.
