Greetings from BlogLand:
MCOL has launched the MCOLBlog, and I'm excited to be a part of it. Actually, we've been blogging to our MCOL paid members for years, but this inaugurates our public blog for all those in the universe wishing to take part in our discussion.
I will be commenting and reporting on a wide variety of topics regarding the business of health care. By way of background, I've been running MCOL, the B2B publisher of managed care and health care business information and resources for the past twelve years. Before that, I ran a regional health plan for over a decade.
In particular, I'll be addressing issues including consumer driven care, transparency, health care reform, strategies addressing plan design and costs, convenient care, international health care issues, Medicare and Medicaid managed care, and much more.
I look forward to your comments.
