A New Blog in the Health Reform Galaxy
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, one of the biggest names in the health policy world, has launched a new blog, calledÂ The Userâs Guide to the Health Reform Galaxy. I donât know if theyâre purposely invoking The Hitchhikerâs Guide to the Galaxy, but like the fictional Guide, they seem to be trying to convey the âdonât panicâ message. Blog editor Minna Jungâs introductory post notes that thereâs lots of feverish activity going on in the health reform arena right now, and promises the blog willÂ âstep back from the scrum, observe, and offer some context and analysis.â
Posts from the blogâs first two weeks cover a range of topics. Jung considers how this push for healthcare reform feels different from the 1993 effort; RWJFâs Jim Marks considers factors besides healthcare that influence health; and George Washington Universityâs Sara Rosenbaum explains the crucial role of the healthcare safety net.
So, if you feel the need for some context and analysis on the many aspects of health reform, check outÂ TheÂ Userâs Guide to the Health Reform Galaxy â and bookmark it, sign up for the RSS feed, etc.
