Welcome to my healthcare blog

Welcome to my healthcare blog. Since I no longer have a regular outlet for my work, I would like to use this space to relay my thoughts on the subjects of clinical information technology, patient safety and healthcare quality improvement.

Some of my postings will be factual, some will be the opinions that to this point I, as a responsible journalist, have kept largely to myself. Other postings may just be random thoughts thrown out for public discussion.

I welcome your questions, comments, suggestions, news tips and, especially, your job leads. :-) Feel free to write me at nversel@rcn.com.

I hope that this can become a forum for intelligent discussion of issues that may have a profound effect on the delivery of care and the health of millions.
