Medical Justice, which advocates for physicians, joins forces with national organization founded by former Speaker Newt Gingrich, which advocates for
changes in healthcare to benefit all Americans
GREENSBORO, N.C., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Medical Justice Services Inc., which has helped physicians successfully defend themselves against meritless medical malpractice cases for the past five years, has joined the Center for Health Transformation, a national organization dedicated to transforming the current healthcare system into a 21st Century Intelligent Health System that saves lives and saves money.
"Whether healthcare should change is not a question anymore," said Jeffrey Segal, MD, a neurosurgeon and the founder of Medical Justice Services Inc. "Healthcare value is created by decisions based on what physicians find in examining rooms, not on what might be said two years from now in a courtroom."
Medical Justice Services is working on a new idea, HealthCare 2.0, which would provide health insurance for the 47 million Americans who don't have it, fund needed patient safety programs and ensure that patients and their families would be taken care of financially should they die or become disabled -- all without additional funding.
The Center for Health Transformation was launched in 2003 as a project of the Gingrich Group, a consulting firm founded by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The Center's membership is made up of healthcare providers, government leaders, large and small employers, universities and others all dedicated to changing the dynamic of the current health and healthcare system.
During this coming year, the Center will be focusing its efforts on health justice, making Medical Justice and its expertise a welcome addition, said Wayne Oliver, the Health Justice Project Director at the Center.

lot to do in creating the
