According to a recently published study, over the past decade, there has been a dearth of funding aimed at improving the care patients receive during outpatient visits. This is especially important, because ambulatory care patient visits outnumber hospital admissions by 300 to 1. Despite these numbers, over 50% of all medical malpractice settlements are for adverse events that occurred in outpatient (office) settings. What’s more, over 65% of those cases involved “major” injuries or death.
