Health care in the 21st century is a complex and difficult enterprise. The costs, risks and pressures are high for everyone involved: individuals and institutions, patients and providers, insurers and insureds, professionals and administrators. High-stakes situations often result in conflicts that are difficult to resolve, especially when the conflicts themselves increase the cost, risk and pressure. Mediation with a neutral mediator who understands the health care world can help parties reach a satisfactory resolution to such matters as:
- Patient-provider disputes over quality of care
- End-of-life decisions
- Medical staff privilege disputes
- Insurance coverage and payment issues
- Licensure disputes
- Workplace conflicts
