Healthcare professionals are the backbone of our society – especially since the start of the pandemic. Their professionalism impacts other healthcare professionals, their patients, and the communities they serve.
With great power comes great responsibility.
Hiring great people who work with integrity, a high moral compass, and for the success of your institution and its patients is essential – and also hard to do.
That’s why medical misconduct is as common as it is. More than 30% of medical boards are fielding complaints because of online HIPAA violations, nearly half of all medical professionals feel pressured to administer potentially incorrect medications and 40% of professionals fail to speak up about an incorrect medication order due to intimidation.
These malpractices cost healthcare and hospital systems big time. In fact, healthcare organizations paid $215 Million in settlements for sexual abuse from just one doctor. This just part of the reason why healthcare fraud and abuse costs $60 billion a year.
This excludes the cost of reputational damages that companies incur once the public finds out about misconduct.
