Expert Institute Of Associated Doctors
IPMA was founded with the aim to provide medical-legal, legal, administrative and management services in the field of Medical professional liability all over the country.
Our strength lies in a completely innovative approach to the file: a careful, ‘comparative and ongoing’ study of the case carried out by Specialists and Forensic Scientists. This allows the drawing up of Final Advice which is in continuous compliance with the National/European Guidelines of the reference specific branch relating to the period the event occurred.
Such a development has been made possible through the enhancement – which has taken place over the years – of our Administrative and Scientific Team that, to date, is able to support the management of Medical Liability accidents on behalf of Insurance Companies in defence of ASL (Local Health Authorities) and Italian private healthcare facilities.
Among our best clients we can mention Amtrust Europe, Berkshire Hathaway, Armour Risk, Starstone, CHP Legal and so on. For many of them, in a short time, IPMA has come to play a major role for files regarding the whole national territory, from Triveneto to Sicily.
Our methodology and an innovative approach have allowed us to get from the Companies the “second opinion” revision of medical-legal advice already carried out by other appointed doctors. We know that in Italy there are not similar business realities specifically and exclusively dealing with the medical professional liability. The conventional format of the individual forensic scientist who, by analysing the case in purely medical-legal terms, develops a report without the essential contribution of the branch specialist, is actually very widespread.
We believe that, in the perspective of an extreme evolution and specialization of medicine, both from a diagnostic and therapeutic point of view, the analysis and study of the causal connection must be carried out by doctors specialized in that branch.
Within the team, which includes more than 200 Doctors, we are particularly proud to mention the Work Teams in the field of
- Cardiology/Intensive care
- Infectious Disease
- Surgery in all its subspecialties (Maxillofacial Surgery, Urology, etc.)
- Forensic Dentistry
The Forensic Scientists, following the Specialists’ indications, and subsequent to the required consensus conferences to discuss the cases, draw up the expert report upon an agreed strategy.
Each and every report is accompanied by a detailed bibliography and iconography which are recognised by the scientific community and are taken from highly-specialized International Scientific Internet Portals that allow a continuous and complete updating on every type of topic being dealt with.
