My apologies for brevity and inconsistency, but we are in the midst of a family emergency and I am racing out of town. In my potential absence over this Thanksgiving week - and later, to augment or even replace your reading here - check out Susanne Madden's blog! Many of you know her from PedTalk (in particular) and her detailed and passionate analyses of nearly all things managed care.
I suspect her blog will be less frequent, though of higher and more consistent quality than, say, this one. I am hoping for a little good-impression-by-association. I sincerely wish there were more competition in this blog business for high quality examination of the managed care industry from the perspective of the private practices. Perhaps Susanne and I can duke it out for the role - we'd all benefit.
Congrats and good luck, Susanne.
