Grand Rounds

Tara Smith, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at a university in Iowa (although she's originally from here in the Buckeye State), hosts this week's Grand Rounds. And it's truly grand: she's provided interesting categories, helpful context and gorgeous photos; who could ask for anything more? Oh yeah, and there are 3 dozen posts from which to choose.
I actually had two favorites from this crop:
Here at IB, we're all about transparency in health care (okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but we do spend a lot of time promoting it). The oft-unstated "other side of the coin" is the subject of Emergiblog's Kim muses on patients' responsibilities in the exchange.
And over at the Health Business Blog, David Williams has some serious questions about the relatively new, but burgeoning, "concierge" model of health care practices. He asks if some of these medico-entrpreneurs aren't using a bit of "fuzzy math" in their calculations.
