Some interesting bits I found on the Health Wonk blog-o-sphere:
- Joe Paduda looks at why Kaiser Permanente is starting to offer PPOs and high deductible plans.
- Fard Johnmar at Envisioning 2.0 discusses Walmart’s plan to offer generic drugs for as low as $4.
- A Wall Street Journal/Harris poll shows that the vast majority of healthcare consumers wants to be able to communicate with their physician electronically (i.e.: direct email, electronic access to test results, etc.).
- First foie gras in Chicago and now trans fat in New York City. The Washington Post reports on how big brother is deciding what you can and can not eat.
