Maggie Martin, Director, Crowe & Dunlevy, Hala Mouzaffar, Associate, Horty Springer and Mattern PC, and Christopher Adelman, Shareholder, Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman PC, discuss what an informal resolution process is and the conditions under which this process is used as it relates to physician discipline. They also discuss legal considerations, including what is considered privileged, confidential, or reportable, and they provide recommendations and best practices for lawyers who are advising their clients on the informal resolution process.
