Our Mission:

To innovate, advocate and protect.


The goal of The Risk Authority Stanford, first and foremost, is to help save lives and prevent harm to patients. We believe risk management can and should be used to foster sustainable improvements in patient outcomes and satisfaction, as well as in risk financing and hospital performance. We are committed to creating a safer, more responsive healthcare landscape through personal involvement, cutting-edge technologies, superior analysis and award-winning solutions that are both affordable and accessible.

The Risk Authority Stanford was created from the hospital risk management department serving the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children’s Health. We proudly continue to provide service and solutions to these institutions while also expanding our reach to include health systems, health plans, medical groups and other healthcare and non-healthcare organizations outside of the Stanford family.

For over 20 years, The Risk Authority Stanford has used its accumulated knowledge and experience to get results across all dimensions of healthcare risk management, including:

  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • Healthcare Professional & General Liability (Medical Malpractice)
  • Patient Safety
  • Claims and Litigation
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Worker Safety
  • Risk Financing
  • Clinical Effectiveness

Working as your partner, we can provide your organization with the knowledge, tools, training and strategies that will identify opportunities for improvement, ensure a quantifiable return on your investment and reduce your risk costs.

Our Vision:

Improving the patient experience through empathy, expertise and technology.

The Promise of Risk Management:

A Brief Statement

Where the failures of risk management leave off, the promise of risk management begins. Each day, we do our best to make a difference, to lead the charge for transparency and integrity, and to innovate better answers and practices to meet healthcare’s most complex and urgent issues. There is no destination but the journey, and there is no end point but continual improvement and perpetual renewal of our never-ending promise to try, to fail, to succeed—and then to do it again. We are The Risk Authority Stanford, and this is our story.
