Saegis was a provider of professional development programs and practice management services for Canadian physicians, healthcare professionals, teams, hospitals and clinics. Their high quality, specialized workshops, safety initiatives and cybersecurity training were designed to reduce risk and improve safety in healthcare.
A Member of the CMPA Family
Saegis was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). The CMPA’s mission is to protect the professional integrity of physicians and promote safe medical care in Canada.
The CMPA family of organizations offered a continuum of services, resources and solutions to Canadian physicians as well as institutions and other healthcare professionals. While the CMPA continued to deliver the same medical legal and risk reduction services that members’ value (and were part of annual membership fees), Saegis complemented existing CMPA offerings by providing new and extended services that meet the changing needs of Canadian physicians and other customers in the healthcare sector.
As a member of the CMPA family, Saegis was uniquely positioned to address the challenges in today’s healthcare environment. Physicians, healthcare professionals, hospitals and team-based practices could trust that Saegis programs and services would meet the high standards set by the CMPA.
Why Was Saegis Created?
Since 1901, the CMPA has provided the medical liability protection that enables physicians to practice confidently and make decisions that result in better patient care. The CMPA is an essential component of the Canadian healthcare system, and Saegis contributed to the CMPA’s overarching goal of promoting safe medical care. The creation of Saegis allowed the CMPA family of organizations to extend the spectrum of services offered to meet the evolving needs of physicians and the broader healthcare system. Saegis was established by the CMPA in 2017. Learn more about the CMPA at cmpa-acpm.ca.
