Title VI. Transparency and Program Integrity
Medical Malpractice Demonstration Grants
The Act establishes a competitive grant program for States to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative medical malpractice reforms that help resolve disputes over injuries allegedly caused by health care providers or organizations and promote a reduction in health care errors.
This approach gives states the resources they need to test out reforms, measure the results, and build on what works. Relying on state experiments and experience will show the most effective ways to enhance patient safety, disclose medical errors, encourage efficient dispute resolution, and manage costs.
