Thanks, Joe, for the in­sights on highly com­plex is­sues

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Joseph Conn’s cover story “Ge­nomic medicine goes main­stream” (Feb 20, p. 16) is just one ex­am­ple of the con- sis­tently ex­cel­lent re­port­ing char­ac­ter­is­tic of his long ten­ure at Mod­ern Health­care and your re­lated print and on­line pub­li­ca­tions.

Joe has been a trusted re­source for read­ers like me, who ben­e­fited from his thor­ough re­search and thought­ful in­sights. While he has re­ported suc­cess­fully on a wide range of top­ics, his sto­ries on in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy dur­ing health­care’s dig­i­tal evo­lu­tion shared valu­able ex­am­ples of suc­cesses, chal­lenges and the con­sid­er­able work that re­mains. His re­port­ing on the emer­gence and de­vel­op­ment of physi­cian lead­er­ship doc­u­mented an­other im­por­tant in­dus­try trend.

As he re­tires from Mod­ern Health­care, I of­fer Joe my con­grat­u­la­tions on a job well done.
