- Monthly blog will appear in conjunction with Kellogg Insight research digest -
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University today announced the launch of "Code Red," a monthly blog developed by David Dranove, the Kellogg School's Walter J. McNerney Distinguished Professor of Health Industry Management. "Code Red" is accessible at the following link: http://insight.kellogg.northwestern.edu/index.php/codered.
Through its unique format, "Code Red" examines the current state of the United States healthcare system. Dranove, a renowned health economist and policy analyst, reveals the state of healthcare by discussing actual scenarios against the backdrop of the current policy landscape. With each entry, Dranove will elicit a response from William White, director of the Sloan Program in Health Administration at Cornell University's School of Human Ecology. In addition to the ongoing dialogue between Dranove and White, some of the nation's best economists from institutions such as Harvard, Yale and Rice Universities will lend their perspectives on various postings.
"This is a watershed moment for the U.S. healthcare system as costs continue to climb, tens of millions of Americans lack insurance, and there is widespread variation in quality," said Dranove. "'Code Red' examines the current healthcare situation --- with an eye toward potential game-changing developments such as the 2008 presidential election --- in a balanced way that brings leading insights from top health economists to the forefront."
Using real-life anecdotes business leaders have faced, the October edition of "Code Red" features a discussion about the availability of health insurance and ways in which barriers to healthcare negatively impact the economy. Subsequent discussions will address topics such as the 2008 presidential candidates' healthcare proposals, the quality of healthcare and access to innovation within the sector.
"Code Red" is accessible via Kellogg Insight, the Kellogg School's online research digest. Launched in September, Kellogg Insight takes detailed research articles published primarily in academic journals and makes them easily available --- and understandable --- to the general reader and time-starved business leader.
