Health Wonk Review – hot off the presses

April 5th, 2007 by Julie Ferguson

Jane Hiebert-White has posted a new edition of Health Wonk Review at Health Affairs Blog, with a special thematic focus on “Health Reform 2.0.” There’s no doubt about it – health care reform is in the air – and a bi-weekly reading of Health Wonk Review is a great way to stay up on issues, news, and opinions from those in the trenches. As our friend Joe Paduda notes, it’s time to be paying attention – there is probably no other single issue that will affect us all more than health care reform, consumers and employers alike.
The hosting blog is an adjunct to the highly esteemed Health Affairs, the leading peer-reviewed journal of health policy thought and research, which is issued six times a year. Published since 1981, Health Affairs is nonpartisan and presents a wide range of timely research and commentary on health issues of current concern in both domestic and international spheres. Washington Post has deemed the publication “a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in medicine, health care, and health care policy.” You can view Web Exclusives free for a two-week period following posting. Their blog, which is viewed as a way to engage readers in the health policy debate, also offers informed commentary. It’s a welcome addition to the online health policy blog community.
