Dogs detect diabetics’ trouble, writes Kinsey Sullivan. A non-profit called Eyes Ears Nose and Paws is training dogs to assist diabetics. Don’s comment: This group is training dogs to detect dangerously high blood sugar levels, to nudge people to respond, and to summon 911 if they are unable via a canine-rescue phone. The cost of a trained dog is around $20,000. It would be interesting to see a cost effectiveness evaluation of this approach; it is cool in any event.

Seton Hall Law just hosted a terrific symposium on ACOs.  Kevin’s comment: ACOs are a simple concept with exceedingly complex implementation issues. H/t to Frank Pasquale who blogged it here
