Fierce Healthcare Daily News calls Robin Strongin’s popular health care blog one of “Five Fierce Female Healthcare Bloggers to Watch”

Washington DC, December 1, 2009 — The Nov. 30 news website FierceHealthcare.com featured Robin Strongin’s popular health care blog, Disruptive Women in Health Care (www.disruptivewomen.net), noting it was featured as one of “Five Fierce Female Healthcare Bloggers to Watch.”

FierceHealthcare.com reporter Anne Zieger wrote: “This blog is written by dozens of senior female health care professionals, including clinicians, academic researchers, health advocates, management consultants and political insiders.”

Disruptive Women in Health Care should be required reading, Zieger said.

“This blog lives up to its name, offering challenging ideas—and a strong dose of much-needed attitude—on critical topics like medication adherence and health plan design,” the reporter explained.

“There’s also a lot of play given to women’s topics, such as the new breast cancer screening recommendations, which sadly don’t get as much attention in other publications. While nobody’s suggesting that women’s takes on health issues are better than men’s, these contributors are exceptionally passionate in what they have to say, and it’s a pleasure to hear women roar. There’s much to learn here.”

Robin Strongin, who created Disruptive Women in Health Care (www.disruptivewomen.net) in 2008, says she’s thrilled that women like Zieger who follow health care policy are impressed by her blog.

“We have thousands of followers who regularly read the blog and respond with questions and ideas on these important, constantly changing issues,” Strongin explains. “My goal is to have an even broader discussion about what needs to be done to truly improve health care in this country and abroad. Change begins only when many smart, savvy people who are educated about the topic get the opportunity to participate in the conversation and share their point of view. I’m looking forward to continuing the dialogue with even more people — women and men — who have strong opinions on the future of health care.”

ABOUT DISRUPTIVE WOMEN IN HEALTH CARE

The mission of www.disruptivewomen.net is to serve as a platform for provocative ideas, thoughts, and solutions in the health sphere. We recognize that to accomplish this, we need to call on experts outside of the health industry.

The founding Disruptive Women have audacious hopes for our blog. We’re not managing change, we’re not thriving on chaos — we’re not waiting for cures. We’re driving change, we’re creating chaos, and we’re finding cures. In a nutshell: We’re disrupting the status quo in the health machine.

Our goal is to become the “go to” health care blog — one that is recognized as a Petri dish for fresh ideas and bold solutions. Won’t you join us?
