On August 6, 2012, Governor Deval Patrick signed into law the Health Care Payment Reform Act -- legislation intended, in part, to reduce health care costs and provide for “increased transparency, efficiency and innovation.”

The Act contains significant changes with respect to medical malpractice litigation, including new rules for filing and responding to medical malpractice claims, an increase of the charitable immunity cap on damages, and interesting rules regarding “apology and disclosure” by medical providers.

Attendees will learn from our panel of experienced practitioners the essential issues and methods to avoid potential pitfalls associated with the new Act.  Medical malpractice professionals, including attorneys, in-house counsel and insurers alike will benefit from this timely and important instructional course.
