This afternoon, we released the latest in our series “5 Things We’re Watching” for Washington State.  Our Alaska edition will start next month.

You can read the newsletter here.  “5 Things” is our effort to meet the feedback from last year’s Washington conference attendees.  “We’d love to hear about what’s going on in the industry from time to time” was a common refrain in our feedback survey.

So, we launched our every-other-month newsletter focused on 5 things we’re tracking closely.  They may not be the 5 most important issues of the day, but they are 5 of the things we’re particularly concerned with or interested in.

For instance, we’re sort of interested in a fanciful way of what might come out of Costco selling EMRs.  But, we’re very concerned with the state of policy deliberations on Medicaid and Medicare funding.  Get the difference?

In any case, if there is something you’re interested in, or thing that we should be, drop us a note.  Let us know what you have in mind.  We’re always up for some good insight.
