Neupert On Health
A New Place for Health Care Policy Debate
About a month or so ago, the Washington Post launched their new Health Care Rx blog , and I was asked to participate as a panelist.

History Doesn’t Have to Repeat Itself
(cross-posted on Microsoft on the Issues ) My family and I just got back from a vacation in Mexico, so the news that’s on everyone’s mind—the spread of H1N1 Influenza A —is weighing even more heavily on me.

Rush to Reform
I haven't posted for awhile -- mostly because I have been busy with customers, development projects, and the impact of the economic crisis -- but also because I’ve felt that there has been so much noise and anticipation around the priorities of the incoming Administration that reading seemed more...

Liberate the Data Part II – Perspectives from Eclipsys and Microsoft
It was just about a year ago at last year’s HIMSS that I posted about the need to “ liberate the data ” within health IT systems – separating data from applications and making it available for reuse in different contexts. What I said then holds true now. For health enterprises and consumers, health data...

Before you finalize your Health IT shopping list
The mad dash for health reform continues in earnest as stakeholders from all parts of the health ecosystem work to inform, engage and encourage the incoming Administration. The need for reform is obvious and the dialog is positive -- I continue to worry that 'soundbite solutions' will get...

Change Agents at Work; Catalysts to Improve Our Health System
There are days that I love my job (not every day yet), and last week I had one of those special days.

Tear Down the Walls and Liberate the Data
(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...

Interesting week of interactions

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...

Message to Washington -- It's all about Outcomes
Yesterday, I testified before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee , otherwise known as HELP. You can see a video of my testimony here .

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...
