Another blog aggregator

There’s a new aggregation service for healthcare blogs that I believe just started this week. Actually, it’s more than a blog aggregator, it’s a blog summary. And it’s not just a blog summary, it’s a high-profile one, from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Specifically, the Kaiser Daily Health Policy Report will highlight recent entries from various healthcare blogs every Tuesday and Friday in a segment called “Blog Watch.” The first one appeared earlier this week—with no mention of this blog. I’ll live, but someone please tell the Kaiser folks I’m out here. Please. :-)

Speaking of other media outlets, CNBC’s “Squawk Box” will have athenahealth Chairman and CEO Jonathan Bush as a guest Thursday at approximately 7:25 a.m. EDT, according to an athenahealth media advisory. Given that it is 1:30 a.m. CDT as I write this, we’re talking less than five hours from now. I guess I’ll catch it online.

Bush, a two-time guest on this blog (March 2007 and March 2008), will unveil the 2008 rankings of his company’s PayerView study of the health insurance industry.

And since my previous post was about mobile technology, I might as well mention the news from A.D.A.M. Inc.: the consumer health information portal has launched a new application for the iPhone called Symptom Navigator. It seems to be exclusive to the iPhone. That Steve Jobs sure knows how to work the cool factor.
