Jonathan Cohn is very excited that health care mergers are up strongly in the third quarter. I suspect its a blip, as Wellpoint’s got no one left to buy, and who’d want Merck in its present state? But who knows what excites the Volvo driving frappuchino drinking liberal intellectual, these days. (Hint, conspiracy theories around Medicare Part D and health care as the "new defense" might be the answer).
Meanwhile I’ll have more on the PHR later, as I’ve had my knuckles rapped by someone who knows more than me about consumer surveys….
