OMIC has received reports of “wrong” events associated with intravitreal injections. These include wrong condition, wrong dose, wrong drug, wrong eye, and wrong patient.

To ensure that the correct drug and dose are injected into the correct eye every time, the ophthalmologist needs to lead a time out before each injection. A time out provides the opportunity to confirm that the patient, medical record, and ophthalmologist are in agreement.

Time out before intravitreal injections is a sample protocol that can help prevent errors.

Six reasons OMIC is the best choice for ophthalmologists in America.

#3. Best at defending claims.

An ophthalmologist pays nearly half a million dollars in premiums over the course of a career. Premium paid is directly related to your carrier’s claims experience. OMIC has a higher win rate taking tough cases to trial, full consent to settle (no hammer) clause, and access to the best experts. OMIC pays 25% less per claim than other carriers. As a result, OMIC’s base rates have consistently averaged approximately 15% lower than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
