With this post, I start my first blog and what I think is the only blog site devoted to the topic of alternative dispute resolution in the healthcare industry. As stated above on the masthead, I intend to blog at the intersection of ADR and healthcare law. Both of these topics are well covered separately elsewhere (see links and blogs in sidebar), and I will try not to duplicate those efforts.
To make this site most useful, and to bring some order to my thoughts, I am dividing the world of ADR For The Healthcare Industry into topics that make sense to consider separately. In alphabetical order, this blog will discuss alternative dispute resolution in the context of:
Commercial Healthcare Disputes
End of Life and Treatment Decisions
Healthcare Regulatory Actions
Hospitals, Physicians and Medical Staffs
Managed Care Payment and Coverage Issues
Medical Malpractice Claims
These topics will overlap, and undoubtedly will subdivide and recombine over time. But this is where I will start. Let me know what you think.
