We are pleased to announce that the 2013 edition of “Medical Liability Reform – Now!” is now available online at http://www.ama-assn.org/resources/doc/arc/mlr-now.pdf.
“Medical Liability Reform – Now!” provides medical liability reform (MLR) advocates with the information they need to advocate for and defend MLR legislation. It includes background on the problems with the current system, proven solutions to improve the liability climate and a discussion of innovative reforms that could complement traditional MLR provisions. We hope this document sheds light on this particularly complicated issue and provides direction for those looking to fix it. This is a crucial period for MLR as federal policymakers and their state colleagues implement health system reform. Please visit www.ama-assn.org/go/liability or contact Kristin Schleiter (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on medical liability reform.
