White House places funds in reducing medical malpractice

by Administrator 24. June 2010 08:55

Earlier this month, the Obama administration followed up on a promise made to Republicans in the fall by approving funds intended to reduce medical malpractice.  25 million dollars worth of grants will be distributed to state health departments, medical centers, and universities.

The grants are intended to reduce injury and improve doctor/patient communications, and as a result hopefully reduce medical malpractice lawsuits and costs and lower liability insurance premiums.  In an address to Congress last September President Obama stated, "I don't believe malpractice reform is a silver bullet, but I've talked to enough doctors to know that defensive medicine may be contributing to unnecessary costs".
