BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

The American Medical Assn. recently issued its principles for health courts:

  • Health courts should be structured to create a fair and expeditious system for the resolution of medical liability claims--with a goal of resolving all claims within one year from the filing date.

  • Health court judges should have specialized training in the delivery of medical care that qualifies them for serving on a health court.

  • Negligence should be the minimum threshold for compensation to award damages.

  • Health court judgments should not limit the recovery of economic damages, but non-economic damages should be based on a schedule.

  • Qualified experts should be utilized to assist a health court in reaching a judgment.

  • Health court pilot projects should have a sunset mechanism to ensure participating physicians, hospitals and insurers do not experience a drastic financial impact based on the new judicial format.
