Short reply:
There is an extensive literature that the litigation does nothing to
improve health care and it is not intended to so do.
There is not corollary between commission/omission of malpractice and
outcome as measured by physicians blinded to the trial outcome.
There is a direct corollary between income of the patient and likelihood of
making it into the courthouse.

Simple test:
If there is a corollary between malpractice and skill, lost cases should be
evenly distributed.
If there is a corollary, OB, Neurosurgeons and ER must be the worst
practitioners.

Our current system is not civil but criminal. (That's not commentary, it's
analysis of the process.) (Say if you want more.)

I have only seen 1 case that resulted in improvement and I don't know, I
just guess, that the outreach was the result of a case instead of an
advocacy/outreach. Research Tyler Kahle Story. I use this effort in
education to this day.
