What Healthcare 311 News Is
Healthcare 311 News is a running collection of brief notes & commentary on news about initiatives of all kinds that have been undertaken to make routine health care easier & more convenient.
We use “routine health care” to identify the care people can get, or should be able to get, on their own schedule & under their own power. That means we won’t be talking much about complex surgeries or treatments that involve lots of expensive technology, except when innovations emerge that make these things less difficult and less inconvenient.
We talk mostly about health care in the US context.
Examples of likely Healthcare 311 News topics
What Healthcare 311 News is not
Clinical: Healthcare 311 News is not published by doctors, and is not expressly for health care professionals. We hope clinicians will comment regularly on their views about the clinical implications of easy care initiatives.
Legal: Healthcare 311 News is not about the parsing of laws or regulations, or of proposed laws or regulations. Laws and regulations will inevitably be referenced, and sometimes discussed, but rarely as the focal point of any post.
Political: We feel what is happening is more interesting than who is in favor of it. We may mention who is in favor of an easy health care initiative, and/or who is against it, but we probably won’t dwell on it.Tweet
