Health Wonk Review and some handy new tools

January 24th, 2008 by Julie Ferguson

A new edition of Health Wonk Review is being hosted by Vince Kuraitis at e-CareManagement blog, including posts about in-store clinics, physicians, problems and solutions in health systems, and cats, dogs and kangaroos. Suffice it to say that this is the first time kangaroos have surfaced in HWR, and I will leave it to you to discover why. This edition is Vince’s debut as HWR host, and he carries out his duties with style and grace. His blog focuses on issues and trends in chronic disease management and technology. While there, you might check out his take on Disease Management Megatrends for 2008, a post which is also available in a 20-minute podcast version.
