Letter: Clinical information in magazine is welcome

July 10, 2014

A reader urges Medical Economics to make more clinical information available in the magazine

Kudos on returning some clinical information to Medical Economics. While the business of medicine is the primary focus of your publication, many of us are far enough down the feeding chain as to have little impact on our organization’s business decisions.

Some articles are relevant, e.g. personal finance and taxes, but if there were consistently some concise clinical updates such as the Rx of anemia in heart disease patients (“Recommendation addresses treatment of anemia in patients with heart disease,” April 25, 2014), I would peruse the magazine more carefully and more often.
