Health Courts

What if we could have a rational, consistent medical justice system that resolved claims expeditiously? What if the bulk of the money spent on the system went to victims instead of to legal fees, court costs and other expenses? Finally, what if this new system could actually promote patient safety by bringing the causes of medical injuries to light rather than pushing that information underground?

These are the questions being asked over at RWJF's Pioneer portfolio blog.
