Officials from patient-safety and healthcare-quality groups will join federal lawmakers to announce the introduction of new legislation that would let states create, on a pilot-project basis, special health courts to handle medical disputes. They will meet at noon EDT on Thursday, May 24, at the Swamp outside the Russell Senate Office Building, Washington. Participants will include Sen. Michael Enzi (R-Wyo.); Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.); Margaret VanAmringe, vice president for public policy and government relations at the Joint Commission; and Sharon King Donohue, general counsel at the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
