Expenses to US healthcare organizations and providers can become exorbitant due to the cost of medical malpractice. Arbitration agreements, which are incorporated into the admission process in many healthcare organizations, can reduce this burden by decreasing the number of jury trials and legal defense costs, promoting timely resolutions, eliminating the concern of unpredictable jury verdicts and damage awards, and maintaining disputants’ privacy. If a dispute proceeds to litigation it is beneficial to have a case heard in a reasonable venue, and a choice of forum agreement is valuable to incorporate in the admissions process. The panel will present an overview of choice of forum and arbitration agreements in the healthcare industry, several state laws, case scenarios and lessons learned. Successful strategies in using these agreements will be presented from a claims and risk management perspective. 

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Lori Shapiro and Dylan Braverman as they discuss:  

  • The value and risks of incorporating forum selection and arbitration agreements into healthcare organizations
  • Prudent strategies for successfully using forum selection and arbitration agreements
  • Risk and claims management practices to have forum selection and arbitration agreements enforced
