Medical Liability - Prospects for Federal Reform.

Author information

From Stanford Law School (M.M.M., D.M.S.) and the Departments of Medicine (D.M.S.) and Health Research and Policy (M.M.M.), Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA; and the Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston (A.K.).

"Medical malpractice reform appears to be back on the federal policy agenda, and some GOP-proposed reforms, such as safe harbors and administrative compensation, are sensible. But design and implementation details matter: patients’ needs should be front and center."
