SERVICES

In addition to traditional law firm work,
we publish regularly* in several medical peer-reviewed journals and professional forums on law and medicine. We design custom risk prevention programs for healthcare clients, through education and onsite organizational assistance. BalBrenner can develop practical solutions that work for our client — that improve quality, enhance communications, and promote patient safety.

  • INFORMED CONSENT/PATIENT EDUCATION

    Through consultation and onsite assistance, BalBrenner enhances client ability to ensure proper informed consent decision-making by patients.  BalBrenner views informed consent as mutual discovery based on exchanging meaningful and understandable information, as opposed to signing incomprehensible consent forms that some may erroneously view as a waiver of liability. An informed patient who is satisfied with information exchange can more easily establish a therapeutic bond with the provider, ensuring fewer lawsuits, and more favorable outcomes.

  • PATIENT SAFETY/RISK MANAGEMENT

    BalBrenner assists its clients in establishing patient safety, risk management and patient quality control systems. These systems are designed to continuously monitor, assess and improve the delivery of health care services.

    BalBrenner works with each client to establish monitoring criteria unique to each clients health care delivery environment. The BalBrenner team also assists in the "assessment " phase by implementing data systems. These systems are designed to provide the client with profile analysis of high risk areas that could lead to patient injuries or poor outcomes. These efforts will facilitate early intervention when potential problems arise and  recognition of patterns of risk that have the potential to lead to malpractice litigation.
