Neil Versel's Healthcare IT Podcasts

SAN FRANCISCO--Dr. David Brailer is a very popular man these days. Having $700 million of Other People’s Money to invest, as his company, Health Evolution Partners does, tends to do that. At the Health 2.0 Conference today, it took an hour and 15 minutes for him to fend off the suitors and finally sit down with me for this brief but lively podcast about his new venture and about the current state of health information technology in America. I think it was worth the wait.

(Everyone else is blogging this event live. I can’t keep up, so thought I’d try something different.)
