This blog explores how health reform is changing the ways in which we pay for and deliver health care in the U.S. On any given week, that could mean a look at how the Obamacare coverage expansion is reshaping the individual insurance market, how the safety net system is adapting to new financial pressures, or how the ACA is encouraging doctors and hospitals to merge into ever-larger entities. We also explore health care costs and whether Obamacare can live up its promise to rein them in. Throughout, we keep watch on how the goals of health reform intersect with the shaping power of markets and human behavior. Contributors include veteran health journalist Trudy Lieberman, UCLA health policy expert Gerald Kominski, and independent health journalist Kellie Schmitt. Ryan White, content editor of Center for Health Journalism Digital, serves as the blog's principal editor.

In this blog, authors Dr. Michael Hochman and Dr. Pieter Cohen discuss a wide variety of medical and health care issues in an informal manner, writing as if everyone on the list will be joining them in clinic later in the afternoon.
