New Medical Malpractice Mediation System Now Underway

OPB | July 2, 2014 12:30 p.m. | Updated: July 2, 2014 2:30 p.m.

As of this month, Oregon has a new mediation system in place designed to help cut down on medical malpractice lawsuits, while still giving patients a way to redress grievances. The state legislature created the system last year, with Governor Kitzhaber leading the effort.

We’ll talk to the Kristian Foden-Vencil, health reporter for OPB News, about how the system will work, the benefits expected, as well as some of the criticisms it’s already drawn.

What questions do you have about this new mediation system?
