Patty Hughes is responsible for OBPI’s risk management resources and services for healthcare policyholders. Recognizing that the role of the healthcare risk manager is changing and that for many risk managers the challenges in creating an effective risk management program include time, skills and resources, Hughes continuously strives to develop and position offerings in a unique way that support the evolution of this role across all healthcare settings and that help to demonstrate the value of an effective risk program in an organization. She oversees the coordination of internal and external consulting services that assist policyholders in identifying and managing risk exposures.
Under Hughes’s direction, OBPI risk managers support underwriting, producers and clients by performing risk reviews of new and renewing accounts and participating in pre-bind meetings.
Having more than 30 years of clinical and management experience in healthcare, including experience as a director of risk for two integrated health systems with captive insurance programs, OBPI’s offerings are risk management designed for healthcare by a healthcare risk management professional.
