Will technology solutions for patient safety reduce healthcare malpractice suits?

In this Salon.com article by Rahul K. Parikh, M.D., tort reform isn't so popular.

"Tort reformers neglect the fact that malpractice reform won't save one extra life. To make that difference, insurers, doctors and their lobbyists like the AMA need to find ways to improve patient safety. So for those who push tort reform as a panacea for a sick healthcare system, working to prevent injuries is a much more noble pursuit than writing up baseless arguments for the back pages of a newspaper."
