Grand Rounds Call for Submissions: Healthcare Innovations and New Technologies

The next medical blogosphere Grand Rounds will be held at The Efficient MD on September 11, 2007.

The theme of Grand Rounds will be "Healthcare Innovations and New Technologies." Submissions broadly related to innovations in healthcare are welcome: new technologies, models of practice, and ways of improving efficiency or the quality of care. Speculations about the future of healthcare are also encouraged. Old posts are welcome. If you haven't written about this topic before, feel free to use this opportunity to write on the future of healthcare. Be creative.

Please send your submissions to [email protected] with the subject "Grand Rounds" by Sunday, September 9 at 6 pm EST.

Some background on the topic of this Grand Rounds: I chose "Healthcare Innovations" because I will be participating in a panel discussion titled "Healthcare 2.0: Technology & Healthcare Services of the Future" at the 5th Annual Healthcare M&A and Corporate Development Conference. (And by all means, if you'll be at the conference, look me up.) Particularly interesting ideas from this Grand Rounds may also be mentioned prominently at the panel discussion.

(As an aside, the conference will be held in Nashville. Coincidentally, the last time I was in Nashville was on a trip away from New York on September 11, 2001 -- the date of this Grand Rounds -- but that's another story.)

Of course, if you don't have a formal submission to Grand Rounds but would like to mention an important link or idea, please feel free to comment.
