1. : Fretting about how to get your dose of tomorrow’s “summit”? Don’t worry, CSPAN has got you covered for the Health Care Summit that is kicking off at 10am.

: Joe Paduda at Managed Care Matters points out that the Anthem rate increases have shown an inability for private insurers to control costs.  What Paduda is missing in his piece is advice to private health insurers about how to manage costs without another “managed care backlash” like we had in the 1990s.

: Maggie Mahar has a beef with the New York Times’ channeling of Dr. Bach’s New England Journal of Medicine article , where Dr. Bach criticized the  Dartmouth Atlas researchers’ methodology by claiming that they failed to risk adjust. Dr. Atul Gawande also believes the criticism is misplaced .

: NPR reports on a somewhat cozy relationship between reconciliation and previous health care initiatives.

? Kevin MD discusses how hospitals are utilizing speed dating techniques to match obstetricians with potential patients.

: Dr. John Halamka with a slew of handouts from the HIT Policy Committee’s recent meeting, as well as notes from a recent meeting of the HIT Standards Commitee.
