Found this article via [ profile] soaring_phoenix. It links to a LJ which carries the full text of the journal article due to restrictions in *getting* said article publically.

Oral conception. Impregnation via the proximal gastrointestinal tract in
a patient with an aplastic distal vagina. Case report.

I've been reading a lot of medblogs - usually done by doctors, nurses, residents, paramedics, etc. talking about what they do or interesting cases/news stories, and so forth. (Some are clinical, some are literary, but there are a LOT of cool ones out there.) There are also ones done for health business - insurance, pharma, that sort of thing. Of course, there are patient/caregiver blogs also, but I don't read those so much.

Anyway, I've been thinking about starting a blog about the idiocies I run into working as a biller/insurance specialist, the cases I can't win, the ones I do, and the things I think people need to know about our current healthcare "system". Obviously, everything would be HIPAA compliant - no identifying info, etc. It would also give me more of a soapbox on the inanities and problems inherent, as well as possible solutions.

What I was wondering was if there would be people here interested in reading these vignettes, and/or critiquing me on them. If so, I'll create a filter and try posting some of them here, first, before I try doing a blog "dedicated" to them. I also need to see if I can write/update that often. ;)

Please let me know if you think you'd be interested. I appreciate the input. (I'm also interested in finding an "appropriate" icon for such posts - if anyone on my flist who does icons has ideas, I'd be thrilled.)

(BTW, I survived my fall from Saturday just fine. Not even really achy anymore.)
I was doing my daily blogroll of medical blogs at work, and found one which had a link to a most *interesting* study...well written, very thoroughly thought out...from the British Medical Journal:

The case of the disappearing teaspoons: longitudinal cohort study of the displacement of teaspoons in an Australian research institute

They are masters of the scientific process. Impressive. :)
