Blog on Healthcare Topics Provides Up-to-Date Insight

Blog on Healthcare Topics Provide Up-to-Date InsightWith the launch of its responsive website,, in March, The Center for Health Affairs officially updated its strategy to provide timely, insightful, unbiased information on the healthcare environment with a blog on healthcare topics. Members of The Center’s public affairs team, who collectively have over 40 years of experience in the healthcare industry, author the healthcare blog, including:

  • Deanna Moore, vice president, corporate communications
  • Kirstin Craciun, director of community outreach
  • Tony Gutowski, director of government affairs
  • Michele Fancher, grant development manager 

“The pace of change in healthcare right now is extraordinarily fast. It has challenged us in our traditional avenues of communication because by the time we finish our research, the assumptions we started with have already completely shifted,” said Deanna Moore. “With blogging, you can have an idea, write about it and post it the same day. It’s much more responsive."

Guest authors from both inside and outside the organization will also contribute. Topics will vary but will include:

  • State and federal health policy
  • The state budget
  • Hospital finance
  • Market trends
  • Health equity
  • Population health

The Center's new blog on healthcare topics can be accessed at Initial blog posts discuss repeal and replace paths and implications, the 2018 wage index, health equity in Northeast Ohio and CHNAs.

Though The Center plans to continue with its Issue Briefs, its new blog on healthcare topics will take the place of its shorter Policy Snapshots, all of which will still be available in the publications section of The Center’s website.
