More information: In the course of past decades, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has been introduced into an ever-growing number of areas of law including medical law. It is used not only in medical malpractice cases, but also in disputes between the providers of health services, the health insurance companies, and the patients (insured persons). Comprising negotiation, mediation, arbitration and other techniques of dispute resolution outside of the traditional court proceedings, ADR is often praised for its cost-effectiveness and time-effectiveness, flexibility, confidentiality, and respect for unique aspects of a particular case. However, the use of ADR in healthcare also gives rise to many serious questions regarding its suitability and, in some cases, even legality.
