On the blogs: Harvard hospital hiring, medical home
On Running a Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center CEO Paul Levy compares the participation of other Harvard teaching hospitals in the search for a new chief of OB/Gyn at his hospital to asking Toyota, Honda, General Motors and Chrysler to sit in on Ford's hiring process for a new division manager.
"What would be odd elsewhere is the norm here at the Harvard hospitals," he writes about the search to replace Dr. Benjamin Sachs, who is leaving to become dean at Tulane Medical School. "The Harvard medical system has an odd assortment of customs and norms. One of (the) oddities surrounds the search for a chief of any of the clinical departments at BIDMC, MGH, Brigham and Women's, Children's Hospital, and the other Harvard affiliates."
On WBUR's CommonHealth, Lynn Community Health Center's Lori Abrams Berry asks what happened to the idea of medical home as the state's new healthcare law gets implemented.
"No one should ever be auto-assigned away from an existing primary care relationship," she writes about people who did not choose a plan. "That is not what healthcare reform is all about."
