AAA Insights

Our healthcare data and insights help companies across the industry plan for their disputes by providing an understanding of key AAA case metrics, including the number of healthcare cases, case types, settlement rates, and more valuable information.

A neutral non-profit organization focused on one thing – resolving disputes effectively

The American Arbitration Association was founded in 1926 with the specific goal of helping to implement arbitration as an out-of-court solution to resolving disputes. The AAA is the world's largest private global provider of alternative dispute resolution services.

The AAA does not benefit from arbitrator compensation, which means our only incentive is to resolve cases driven by the parties fairly and cost-effectively.
