Client Testimonials

We engaged The Risk Authority (TRA) to provide us with an ERM readiness assessment. TRA collaboratively worked with us to enhance our current risk management program and used design thinking methods to help us create a precise roadmap to achieve a complete ERM program. The quality and commitment of TRA’s team is outstanding. Their real world risk management knowledge and hands-on approach added tremendous value to our program.

— Kimarie Stratos, Sr. Vice President, General Counsel, and Chief Privacy Officer, Memorial Health System
The team at The Risk Authority (TRA) provided comprehensive on-site consulting services to evaluate our existing communications program and make innovative improvements across multiple disciplines. The TRA team and their resulting risk evaluation were so well received, we have subsequently engaged TRA to help design and implement a peer support program. Their approach to consulting incorporates the various stakeholders within our organization to enhance our existing programs and create a cutting edge service.

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
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
