Individuals and Personal Responsibility May Be the Tipping Point in Health Reform
The latest turn in the healthcare debate is the increasingly sensational coverage of town halls happening across the country. While they’re described as rancorous and sometimes violent , I’m pleased to see my fellow Americans so passionate and involved in one of our country’s biggest long-term challenges...

So this week’s question from the Washington Post RX Blog was: In the Baucus bill, insurers would pay a tax on the value above $8,000 for an individual policy and $21,000 for a family plan. What do you think of Sen. Baucus' proposal to impose a 35 percent tax on "Cadillac" health insurance plans...

I love the fresh debate about standards and the evolution of Health IT raised by the three Health Affairs articles. I agree wholeheartedly with the perspectives of Carol and Clay - and frequently reinforce these comments to customers, policy makers and audiences alike. It's about the patient -...

Reflecting on the healthcare system while waiting at the hospital for a loved one
Often when we talk about healthcare reform, it can be a rather abstract discussion -- you watch some tv show with ‘experts’ reflecting on some 20 page bill or hashing through the merits of a public insurance option. Last week, however, all the intellectual and abstract ideas were brought into something...

(cross-posted on Microsoft on the Issues ) In 1987, President Ronald Reagan gave one of his most well remembered speeches . Few of us could forget his words to Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall”—proving to be prophetic when the German Democratic Republic announced the re-opening of the...

I recently traveled for two weeks in the Asia Pacific region on Microsoft Health related business. I was fortunate to meet with a broad diversity of folks -- from Minister's of Health, to CEO's of leading private and public hospitals, to GP's interested in how technology can help them and even to citizens...

Another milestone on the journey forward…
Over three years ago, we started on a journey -- to empower consumers with tools to help make better health decisions and drive better health outcomes. We believed that the simplest, easiest way to start was to give consumers their data in a secure and private way, and allow them to share it from provider...

A Milestone on Many Levels: Publishing a Joint Op-Ed with Google
Over a year ago, a dialogue started about the rules surrounding ‘meaningful use’ – and with anything like this, there are always lots of voices, lots of opinions. Given our history, we were in the ‘faction’ of folks focusing on ensuring that consumers were at the center of this discussion – and along...

The willingness to succeed is only exceeded by the willingness to prepare
After many long months of discussion and debate , the first draft of Meaningful Use has come out. I’m optimistic about what I see -- what’s been laid out seems to focus on driving real outcomes improvement in the health care system. It’s important that we keep this in mind -- that we’re not just trying...

The right solution for the ‘population’ may be the wrong solution for the ‘individual’
This week's question for the Washington Post Health Care Rx blog was: What does the debate over mammography screening teach us about the challenges in moving to evidence-based medicine in a revamped health system? The debate truly highlights how much work is yet to be done to build a health...
