P4P Concerns, Medicare Vs. Private Insurance Lead HA Blog’s 2012 Most-Read List
Editor’s note: Our sister blog here at Health Affairs, GrantWatch Blog, has also just published its most-read list for 2012 .
Will pay for performance in health care backfire? That was the question addressed through the lens of behavioral economics by Steffie Woolhandler, Dan Ariely, and David Himmelstein in the most-read Health Affairs Blog post for 2012 . Next on the most-read list are two posts, one by Diane Archer  and the other by Archer and Theodore Marmor , contrasting Medicare and private insurance. They are followed by Rushika Fernandopulle’s  rethink of primary care and Ken Kaufman’s post  suggesting that the recent slowing in health care cost growth reflects more than just temporary effects from the economic slowdown.
Many thanks to our readers and authors for making 2012 a good year for Health Affairs Blog. We had 369 posts and over 50 million pageviews, more than a 60 percent increase from 2011. Since we had many good posts that were closely grouped in the readership numbers, we’ve expanded this year’s most-read list to a “top 15″ rather than a “top 10.” The full 2012 list is below.
