Protect Yourself From Medicolegal Risk

TASA ID: 1466

This article was originally published by Review of Optometryhttps://www.reviewofoptometry.com/article/protect-yourself-from-medicolegal-risk

Getting sued for malpractice is a no-win situation. Even if you’re not at fault, you still lose your time and suffer from the emotional toll and overall distraction. 

Fortunately, malpractice payments on behalf of optometrists are rare; on average, there are less than 34 cases nationally each year, and half of them are less than $50,000. But for each malpractice payment, there are even more claims. In ophthalmology, from 1985 to 2007, for every malpractice indemnity payment there were roughly four claims. Over the course of a 35-year career, 95% of ophthalmologists will have one claim against them, and more than half can expect two or three. While optometry may never incur the same level of risk, ODs must remain diligent as practitioners provide more and more medical services.

HEALTH CARE VS HEALTH INSURANCE

TASA ID: 3656

Politicians speak of health care and most individuals think of health care in terms of whether or not they have health insurance. Hence there is heightened panic expressed in the news media about the recent removal of the individual and employee mandates and the anticipated millions of additional people without health insurance. The message generated is that all those people will be without health care.

Parental Alienation in Child Custody Litigation

TASA ID: 54

When marital discord evolves into hatred, many couples are quick to see divorce as their best option. Divorce may be an easy way out for the couple; but it often wreaks havoc on the children.  Family Court judges welcome mental health professionals to guide them in determining the future best interests of the children.  These “guides” are called Custody Evaluators.  When the Custody Evaluator correctly identifies Parental Alienation (PA), the evaluator can recommend a particular strategy that best serves the interests of the child.

Humility in Construction Newsletter

TASA ID: 3647

We have continued to work on more detailed risk evaluations on our projects, trying to use Monte Carlo simulation methods that our friends in industrial projects have used to quantify the variations in total schedules that affect their financial outcomes. You might remember the summary chart of how good our master schedules were over several years. I have taken out the small projects from the figure below, which makes it look even worse.

A Case Study of Patent Abuse (PART II): Patent Trolls on the Run —The Printing Industry Is Winning!

Whitepaper

TASA ID: 7210

This is a follow-up to my July 2016 white paper entitled, “A Case Study of Patent Abuse: Printing Industry Faces New Nemesis Impacting Growth and Employment—Patent Trolls.”

That white paper received enormous industry press coverage, and to my understanding was used as part of court proceedings resulting in the dismissal of two long and visible printing industry cases brought on by patent trolls, CTP Innovations (CTP) and High Quality Printing Innovations (HQPI). However, since then, two new cases emerged by patent trolls attempting to threaten and extort funds from printing industry companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using standard technology common for doing day-to-day business in the printing and related industries.
