A third Bermuda Healthcare Forum is to be held in 2020 following the success of this year’s event.

More than 200 healthcare industry specialists attended the second forum last month, with at least half travelling from overseas.

They discussed risk trends and advised on challenges faced in the healthcare field, including disaster preparedness, population health management, claims, cyber-risk, and disruptive change impacting the healthcare landscape in the United States.

The two-day event at the Hamilton Princess saw Bermuda’s insurance market praised by leading healthcare industry and liability experts for its capacity, collaboration and creative solutions following a successful gathering on the island.

Overseas delegates included brokers, lawyers, specialists in captives, insurance, finance and risk management, plus patient-safety professionals from some of the largest health systems in North America. They were welcomed to the event by David Burt, the Premier.

More than 105 rooms and a total of 322 nights were booked at the Hamilton Princess and nearby hotels as a result of the forum.

Audrey Greening, managing principal of Integro Healthcare Practice in the US, said: “As we face a changing healthcare landscape, we continue to look to the Bermuda marketplace as an industry leader, providing creative solutions for clients in an evolving industry.

“With the financial strength of our underwriting partners and their willingness to work with clients and brokers to develop new products, we rely on the Bermuda capacity to support the healthcare industry with their emerging risks.”

More than 20 local companies participated as sponsors or supporters, including the Bermuda Business Development Agency and major insurance, broking, and banking organisations, along with members of the Bermuda Hospitals Board, Packwood Home and the Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies.
