TechAssure members share best practices among one another and with our industry partners. This leads to consistent education and training on the risks the life science sectors face. Additionally, our members receive regular claims updates from the network and the carrier marketplace – ensuring that our members know the nature of the claims occurring and how to model successful outcomes based on the current claims environment.

My job has been so much easier since we started working with a TechAssure member. To start, they were able to right-size our coverages and eliminate redundancies, which gave us coverage for less money. We quickly had to increase coverages and this was turned around quickly. But, the biggest impact the team has is assisting us with questions of coverage that come from customers. Having them to call on helps us stay focused on our core values, as they bring a level of expertise about liability in the digital health industry that none of us possess.
