Fierce launches its seventh healthcare publication: FierceHealthPayer

Today, we're excited to launch our seventh healthcare publication, FierceHealthPayer. Delivered each week, FierceHealthPayer will provide healthcare plan executives with breaking news, analysis and critical information necessary to stay informed and keep ahead.

As you may have noticed, our healthcare group at FierceMarkets has grown tremendously over the past year: We purchased a blog, Hospital Impact, launched two health IT-related publications (FierceMoblieHealthcare, FierceEMR), hired a veteran health IT journalist to helm our expanding coverage (Neil Versel), and hired our first publisher--me.

And last week, we added another seasoned healthcare journalist to our team, Caralyn Davis, who will serve as editor of FierceHealthPayer and FierceHealthFinance. Caralyn has spent more than 15 years reporting on clinical, management and financial issues for the healthcare industry and is the author of FierceHealthFinance's first eBook, the RAC Audit Survival Guide.

Fierce's all-digital healthcare newsletters now reach a total audience of 155,000 healthcare executives every week. But we're not stopping there. Look for our eighth healthcare publication to launch soon, FiercePracticeManagement. We don't call ourselves Fierce for nothin'!

We're proud of our growth, but we couldn't do it without you. Thanks for being at the heart of FierceHealthcare. This is an exciting--and tenuous--time for everyone involved in healthcare delivery. We'll be here to chronicle and dissect it at every step. And as always, we welcome your feedback and input.
