Three days left. Then we head to Sturbridge and prepare for the start of the 2015 Pan Mass Challenge, a 2-day, 200-mile bicycling fundraiser for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Am I ready? I haven’t trained enough, I’m riding more slowly than I’d like, but – yes, I’m ready.

A few years back, the PMC organization ran a series of rider profiles simply entitled “363/2.” For those of us who have ridden for a number of years, the significance of the figure is immediately apparent. The PMC weekend is a two-day period like no other. Over 5,000 cyclists, thousands of volunteers, thousands more well-wishers along the route, all inspired by a desire to do something concrete to take us a couple of steps closer to ridding the world of cancer. So, thank you all for joining me on this special two-day journey. Many of you have sent the checks and clicked on the donate buttons. Thank you! (The rest of you still can: http://j.mp/pmc-dch) We’re going to blow the roof off – raising $45 million this year and $500 million over the life of this event.

Now I get to ride my bike for two days: it’s a pleasure to have no other responsibilities, to have strangers bringing me powerade and peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches, to ride with my son Michael (sponsor his ride too, if you haven’t already :)  - http://j.mp/pmc-mrh) and my old friend Hillel who got me into this thing in the first place, to live once again in my two-day-a-year village on wheels, to experience the familiar sights and sounds along the way: bubble machines, garage bands, high school cheerleaders, thousands of people calling out “Thanks for riding!”, bagpipes, balloon archways over the road, creative water stop volunteer attire (and let’s not forget the ice couch of Wellfleet!) – and to reflect on the lives of those who are no longer here, and on the experiences of those who have tangled with cancer and come out the other side.

If you’d like to follow along this weekend, I recommend Twitter. You don’t need an account. Just follow the link to the ‪#‎PMC2015‬ hashtag at http://j.mp/1LTAAhf to see everyone’s tweets about the PMC, or just follow my tweets:@healthblawg- http://twitter.com/healthblawg. There will be plenty of photos included, so you may get a glimmer of what it’s like to be there. To borrow a meme brought to mind by the recent Fare Thee Well concerts ... There is Nothing Like the Pan Mass Challenge.

Thank you!
Hi folks -- I've signed up for my twelfth Pan Mass Challenge in August -- as many of you know by now, that's a two-day, 200-mile bicycle fundraiser for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute / Jimmy Fund.  Thanks for all your support in years past, and thanks in advance for your help in licking cancer this year too.

Don't listen to Neil Versel interview me for 20 minutes about electronic health record interoperability ... unless you really want to. I was circumlocuting the name of the company named in the article because the conference organizers asked me not to be company-specific, but there you have it: the answer to the question, "Does anyone make this operating system for value-based care of which you speak?" is: Flow Health - a company with which I am working closely, and now serve as outside General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer. Well, check out the article and feel free to dip into the interview. For more on interoperability, see my blog post today, linked in the comments.
Struggling with meaningful interoperability in the near term? Hear why it's possible and what needs to be done to achieve it.

Story
Tagline
Health care lawyer and consultant, award-winning blogger, photographer, avid cyclist
Introduction
I am a health care lawyer and consultant with over twenty-five years of public and private sector experience, which gives me a unique perspective on legal, policy and business issues facing the health care community. Health care providers, vendors and payors of all shapes and sizes rely on me to help them navigate the maze of regulatory and business issues facing them on a daily basis.

Client engagements in my health law and consulting practice include traditional health care business and regulatory work, including Stark, Fraud and Abuse, HIPAA and Certificate of Need matters, as well as work in more novel areas including Health 2.0 and social media.

I enjoy spending time with my family, bicycling, hiking and photography.  Check out my live tweets and photos from the 2009 Pan Mass Challenge, some photos from a hike in the Southwest (including some alternative reality from Las Vegas), and from Winter 2009 on my street.
