Risk Management Services

Risk Management Services are included in every policy EPIX writes. All EPIX groups have a responsibility to participate in the risk services program as an important piece to the foundation of EPIX’s physician-owned model. EPIX believes that implementation of evidenced-based clinical and operational protocols in the emergency and urgent care setting will result in a reduction in risk and an improvement in patient care.

EPIX CME and Patient Safety Briefs are developed and written exclusively for EPIX insured physicians and advanced practice providers by nationally known educator and clinically practicing emergency physician, Dr. Stephen Colucciello. All CME are exclusive to EPIX and accredited ACEP Category I and AMA PRA Category 1™. All CME include urgent care best practices.

Onsite Risk Assessments. Comprehensive risk assessments measure compliance to over 200 evidence-based indicators. EPIX collaborates with groups to address opportunities for clinical and operational improvement in their emergency department. Urgent care sites have access to the EPIX self-guided risk assessment tool for urgent care.
