Weekend update

Both Houses of Congress are again in session this coming week. Here is a link to the Week in Congress’s review of last week’s actions on the Hill.

Tomorrow and Tuesday, the FEHBlog is going to check out the Healthcare Payment and Learning Action Network’s summit in beautiful Tyson’s Corner Virginia.  Why not? There’s no admission charge.

Tomorrow Truven Health Analytics announces the top 15 health systems for 2016. The FEHBlog can hardly contain his excitement.  The list will be posted here tomorrow.  Earlier this month, IBM closed on its $2.6 billion purchase of Truven. There’s no minimum loss ratio requirement on selling consulting services.
