This morning I had the occasion to read a new piece of legislation, titled “The ACO Improvement Act of 2014,” that was introduced barely two weeks ago. I like new stuff, especially new legislation designed to improve old legislation. Seems like there’s been more of that the last few years, especially dealing with healthcare issues, than ever before—and probably for good reason.
I wish someone had written a training manual about how to start a blog, what subjects might be appropriate and which might be inappropriate, and how to express your opinions in ways that are informative, tactful, respectful, courteous, and brief. Unfortunately, no one has. So, today I’m kicking off an untested, unencumbered, and unrestricted (as of yet) blog whose focus is the discrete event modeling of healthcare systems.
