What is a medical review panel?

Under the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act, medical malpractice claims against healthcare providers who elect coverage under the Act are reviewed by a medical review panel where the patient selects a doctor; the defendant selects a doctor; and those two doctors select a third doctor to serve on the panel. An attorney who is agreeable to all the parties is chairman of the panel, organizes the information and sets up the meetings.
