Modern Healthcare:
Healthcare Heavyweights Urge Obama To Back Berwick

A virtual Who's Who of the patient-safety and health care quality movements has signed a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to request that Senate hearings be held on his nomination of Dr. Donald Berwick as administrator of the CMS, who currently is serving a temporary recess appointment that expires in December. ... But, regardless of how a vote would turn out, Dr. Lucian Leape, adjunct professor of health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health, thinks hearings should be held anyway and is seeking to push Obama and Baucus in that direction (Robeznieks, 3/20).

This is part of Kaiser Health News' Daily Report - a summary of health policy coverage from more than 300 news organizations.
