Medical malpractice is the third leading cause in American deaths. Researchers at Johns Hopkins estimated that more than 250,000 deaths occur every year as a result of medical error, which is attributed to systematic problems like poorly coordinated care. Malpractice insurers and medical specialty groups are digging through thousands of closed medical malpractice claims that have been tried, dismissed or settled in recent years. Their goal is to share insights with doctors and hospitals, who will use that information to develop new safety protocols and prevention strategies. Do you think this will be effective?
