2021 Risk Management Resolutions
As we begin a new year, our PRMS® Risk Managers have a few key resolutions to consider in 2021. Given these tumultuous times, we have reduced the number of resolutions this year. You may already be doing everything suggested below – if so, keep up the great work! And if not, you may find these resolutions useful to your practice – it’s never too late to start implementing!

- Telepsychiatry Checklist
- Other telepsychiatry resources, including state waiver information, planning for post-pandemic practice, FAQs, and more at PRMS.com/FAQ
- I will be proactive and create a plan for the unlikely event of my sudden unavailability or inability to practice.
- I will continue to address cybersecurity to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of my patient’s health information.
