Reforming medical malpractice as part of health care reform

July 14, 2009

KevinMD has a good post about including medical malpractice reforms as part of the overall health care reform currently being debated in Washington.

The only other point I think needs to be emphasized is the time involved in the current malpractice system.  Right now, most medical malpractice cases can drag on for years.  This is detrimental to everyone, except the lawyers.  As I’ve said before, working on strategies (such as courts that deal only with malpractice) to streamline the process and make it quicker will benefit both patients and doctors.
