Spotlight on JAMS Panelists: Viggo Boserup, Esq. and Martin Quinn

Mediation has become the predominant forum for resolving health care disputes, including payor/provider and fraud and abuse disputes.  This panel discussion will include two experienced mediators and a health lawyer in order to provide different perspectives on concrete “best practices” to make these mediations productive and successful for all parties.  Complex healthcare disputes often require a more strategic and individualized approach to the process than the typical single day of mediation. 

Specific discussion points that our expert panelists will address include:

  • Preparation for the mediation, including selection of the mediator, determination of issues, and participants.
  • Analysis of the issues and determination of the process.  This may require a detailed pre-mediation management conference.
  • Best practices for advocates during the mediation.
  • Post mediation follow-up.
