What a week here in San Diego, and the oven is just starting to warm up in this resource rich county peppered with cutting edge integrated delivery systems, pockets of physician thought leadership, encircled by high concentrations of bio-tech, life sciences and wireless health innovators, including forward thinking academic centers of excellence.
Meanwhile, we continue to wait on the first round of a notice of proposed rules regarding implementation of the Account Care Organization provisions embedded in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which incidentally turned one year old yesterday, March 23rd, 2011. The recently re-skinned CMS site for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation is encouraging, check it here.
Lots to report, including the inaugural meeting of the Health 2.0 San Diego Chapter. Back later!
