Attorney Nina Kallen hosted this week’s Cavalcade of Risk, and it included a couple of interesting entries about the Facebook IPO. Given that we write about health insurance, I especially liked Dr. Jaan Sidorov’s article comparing Facebook and ACOs. His verdict? Well, you’ll have to read his article to get the details, but he’s not particularly impressed with either one. I tend to see ACOs in a relatively positive light, and I think they have a lot of potential for cost savings and creating more of a teamwork dynamic between providers and health insurance carriers. But Dr. Sidorov makes some good points about the potential downsides. As usual, good food for thought from the Disease Management Care Blog.
