Attentive readers will note two changes in my list of blog links (to the right.) First, I have moved blogs related to Lean process improvement into the "Transparency" category. The two are so interrelated that it made sense to combine them. If you write a blog about Lean, I would be happy to consider it for inclusion. Just offer it in a comment below. Also, if you are part of a hospital association, hospital, or other organization that is strongly committed to transparency and have a website or a blog about that, please let me know in a comment below.
Second, I have updated several other blogs to indicate a "dormant" status. These are blogs that have been officially closed by their writer or are otherwise inactive but have a wealth of information and interesting points of view that still deserve reading. An example is Mike Sevilla's Dr. Anonymous. (Mike is now over at Family Medicine Rocks, where he offers a slightly different perspective on things.) Another is Lester Leung's Apollo, MD, which gave us a travelogue in his journey from pre-med to the beginning of residency.
