Legal and policy interventions to improve patient safety.

Kachalia A, Mello MM, Nallamothu BK, et al. Circulation. 2016;133:661-71.

This review explores policy and legal approaches to addressing care delivery problems, including strategies that focus on transparency, reimbursement, professional regulation, and tort reform. The authors suggest cardiologists are well-positioned as leaders in adopting these approaches because the conditions they treat are highly visible, common, and expensive.
