OneBeacon’s Jennifer Weinstein Speaking at PLUS Conference

This year’s PLUS International Conference is taking place in Atlanta, GA from November 1-3, and team members from several OneBeacon businesses are looking forward to the networking opportunities and educational sessions taking place during the conference.

Jennifer Weinstein, Assistant Vice President Management Liability Claims, will participate in one of these sessions titled, “WARNING – The Internet May Be Hazardous to Employees!” This panel discussion will focus on how employers must be prepared to prevent and/or address a wide range of workplace issues arising out of the internet and social media – whether there are potential safety issues that happen in the workplace or concerns about privacy and employers using social media to find out more about employees or potential employees. The panel will address policies and procedures employers can institute to mitigate some of those exposures.

Stop by to hear the discussion on November 2!

Sarah Logue and Linda McSmith Speaking at ASCA 2017

OneBeacon Healthcare Group’s Sarah Logue and Linda McSmith are speaking at the 2017 Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) conference in Washington D.C. this week.

Their session, “Protect Your ASC by Evaluating Its Insurance Coverages,” outlines key objectives and strategies to help evaluate current insurance coverages and considerations for the next insurance renewal season. Each insurance policy or coverage option that is signed offers an opportunity to protect a facility’s assets. Reconsider the way risks are looked at and treated in an ASC.

Thursday’s presentation will help demonstrate strategies for leaders to implement that may affect the way they look at and treat risks in their organization.

OneBeacon Healthcare Group’s Patty Hughes Speaking at Local ASHRM Chapter Event

Senior Vice President and Risk Manager Patty Hughes is participating today on a panel titled, “Risk Managing Midwifery Practices,” at the New England Regional Healthcare Risk Management Conference in Mystic, CT.

The practice of Midwifery is thousands of years old and still evolving. In the U.S. there are Licensed Midwives, Certified Nurse Midwives, Certified Midwives, Certified Professional Midwives, Direct Entry Midwives and Traditional Midwives. According to the Midwives Alliance of North America, slightly more than 10% of births in the U.S. are attended by midwives. Midwives may practice in private homes, clinics, birth centers, and hospitals, and in addition to maternity care they provide primary women’s health care. The panel will examine the growing use of midwifery practices, the risk associated with them and potential strategies to mitigate risks.

Patty is also exhibiting at the conference, so be sure to stop by to say hello!
