San Francisco, CA

(San Francisco, CA.) Constance Endelicato, a prominent partner at Wood Smith Henning & Berman, has been selected as a featured speaker for the prestigious Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Annual Conference in San Francisco. The conference is set to take place from April 2-4, 2024, at the Marriott Marquis, and will gather professionals from the legal, insurance and construction industries.

Ms. Endelicato along with esteemed panelist Bill Bower, Senior Vice President-Director of Healthcare, GB Specialty (a Division of Gallagher Basset), will shed light on the critical challenges faced by healthcare providers, exploring the implications for patient safety, medical errors, and the increasing trend of litigation. As the healthcare landscape undergoes continuous changes and new challenges, care providers often find themselves grappling with intensified workloads, staff shortages, and hostile work environments. These challenges coupled with a decrease in wages, have contributed to a concerning rise in medical errors and provider burnout. The panel will underscore the importance of prioritizing the overall well-being of care providers, recognizing its direct correlation with their ability to fulfill medical obligations effectively. The presentation will also provide insights into potential strategies to address these challenges and foster a healthier work environment for care providers.

"As legal professionals, our commitment to excellence is not just a standard; it's a guiding principle. The CLM conference provides a valuable platform to exchange insights, navigate emerging trends, and foster collaboration," stated Ms. Endelicato. "Engaging with fellow experts on this panel reinforces the importance of adapting strategies to meet evolving challenges in the healthcare provider landscape."
