Client Testimonials


We work closely with The Risk Authority team because they are innovators and they are leading the way in so many areas. This year, we used their DART approach for making a decision and prediction on an open litigation risk. The case went to trial and came in exactly where the process said it would. It was like magic. Our Board of Directors was blown away.

— Mary Anne Hilliard, Chief Risk Counsel, VP Safety and Patient Experience at Children’s National Medical Center
We at Lockton London/UK have developed an insurance product for the UK healthcare industry, in particular the National Health Service. Intrinsic to this offering is The Risk Authority's approach in clinical risk management and decision-based analytics which have exceeded our expectations and that of our clients. The value The Risk Authority adds to a client engagement is instrumental to implementing change and influencing risk financing decisions and above all else, improving the patient experience.

— Mark Riley-Pitt, Senior Vice President - Healthcare – Insurance and Risk Solutions, Lockton London/UK
