The authors note that Maryland's system for health claims arbitration has failed to reduce the number of malpractice suits, the size of damages awards, or the delay in resolving these claims. After reviewing the current system, its strengths and weaknesses, and various proposals to remedy its problems by amending the current legislation, the authors advance their own suggestions for amending Maryland's health claims arbitration legislation.
