Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber wants to see fewer lawsuits by patients for medical mistakes. Instead, he wants patients to be able to final a complaint with a Patient Safety Commission that kick-starts a review process: doctors talking with patients about solutions, under the guidance of risk managers and mediators.  The Oregon Medical Association and Oregon Trial Lawyers Association back the proposal. The Governor says it will allow for better review and prevention of mistakes to improve safety within the healthcare system, eventually reducing costs. It moves to the Ways and Means Committee for review of fiscal impact to the state.
