Three recommended health care blogs

March 14, 2011

We always learn something new when we read these recommended blogs that focus on health care. 

 The Health Care Blog: In one place you can find fact, opinion, and free-wheeling discussion on all matters health care related, from a range of respected and knowledgable contributors. Case in point, a new post out this weekend from Robert Wachter, titled Why Berwick Matters, is an intelligent analysis of the political posturing that may prevent this eminently-qualified candidate from being confirmed as director of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Robert Wachter has his own blog, Wachter’s World, which is also well worth reading. According to his bio, “Robert M. Wachter, MD is Professor and Associate Chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where he holds the Lynne and Marc Benioff Endowed Chair in Hospital Medicine.” He writes about health care reform and other health matters from the perspective of someone intimitely familiar with “the policy and practice issues that affect real docs and nurses – and real patients – in real hospitals and clinics.”

From the broker’s perspective, you can’t do much better than The Alan Katz Health Care Reform Blog. Alan Katz writes thoughtful, well-reasoned and informative pieces on all aspects of health care reform. For example, his recent post President Obama Endorses Earlier State Opt Out of PPACA provides an excellent guide to recent developments in the discussion between state governors and the administration around issues of state flexibility to control their own health care reform efforts.
