Because we've looked on at the dozen or so blog posts published across Advisory.com every day, and been just a tad jealous inspired. Because we've watched newer efforts like the terrific Care Transformation Center blog find their footing in the past few months.
And because we're hoping to use this space for some of the stories that we haven't been able to fit into our usual cover-the-coverage roundup. Not just breaking news and lighter fare, but some deeply reported analysis.
We hope you'll come along with us, and be unsparing with your feedback.
Meanwhile, we're taking suggestions for what to call this blog. "In Brief"? "Morning Rounds"? "The DBlog"? They're all on the table, but would love to hear your much-more clever suggestions. Feel free to leave a comment below or email me. And as always, thanks for reading.
