MIT Press (Cambridge, MA) has published "Medical Malpractice,' a new book that examines the U.S. medical malpractice process from legal, medical, economic and insurance perspectives, analyzes past efforts at reform and offers policy recommendations. It reviews empirical evidence, assesses "what works" in the current system and argues that the complexity of medical malpractice stems from the interaction of the four discrete markets that determine outcomes: legal, medical malpractice insurance, medical care and government activity. Content covers such topics as jury behavior, health courts, incentives to prevent medical errors, insurance regulation, reinsurance, no-fault insurance and emerging ideas for future reforms. It costs $40.
