Artificial intelligence (AI) has captured the world’s headlines, perhaps in health care more than any other field. From surgical robots to diagnostic machines that can more quickly and accurately detect disease process (such as diabetic retinopathy by studying images of the eye), AI has the potential to transform health care delivery and improve patient outcomes.
Delays in start-up, hailstorms and hurricanes, a skilled labor shortage, rising insurance premiums, social inflation and rising liability concerns, the overarching matter of a global pandemic - when faced with such a smorgasbord of challenges, it’s essential for general contractors and subcontractors in the construction industry to exercise strong risk management, especially when it comes to their supply chain.
Several factors, including the recent COVID-19 crisis, have catapulted health care systems into what many are calling a “new normal.” Those in the space must prepare now for the emerging risks to follow.
Ironshore distinguishes itself in the industry by closely aligning our claim professionals with members of the underwriting, actuarial and finance teams. This is our way of ensuring that the people who make the promises, keep the promises and that our policyholder claims are handled in a professional and expeditious manner.
