Today I defer to the New England links on The Health Wonk Review, a biweekly collection of the best in health policy blogs. Every two weeks, a different blogger hosts this blawg digest — I mean, blog… no, I mean the current host, Health Blawg. Newton lawyer David Harlow hosts this health policy and law site and he’s on wonk review duty.
As a clinician, public health researcher, and medical-watcher, this is what I see: our health system is failing-on cost, coverage, safety, and value-because the complexity of health care itself has exceeded our abilities as individual clinicians.
He also links to his own piece on medical tourism, my piece on HIT and a Mass Hospital Association bit on unions. Other items cover primary care in Mass. and a piece from Health Care Renewal on how Harvard pays its docs. Finds links to all of the above here.
