LETTERS FROM THE POLICY COMMITTEE

The Policy Committee works to educate and engage various groups on how to support CRP at the institutional, state, and federal level. This past year, the committee reached out to the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) and to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The letter to NPDB is part of a continued conversation about efforts to expand alternatives to medical liability litigation.

The letter to CMS illustrates how CRPs are consistent with the principles of Person and Family Engagement.

Malpractice Liability and Health Care Quality – A Review

Publish Date: January 28, 2020

A systematic review of 37 studies of malpractice deterrence  published between January 1, 1990, and November 25, 2019 was conducted to examine the association between malpractice liability risk and health care quality and safety. This review found that most studies suggest that higher risk of malpractice liability is not significantly associated with improved health care quality. The findings also suggested that greater tort liability was not associated with the improvement of quality of care.
