It works for rap, why not for health care speak?

Health Care Reform Gangnam Style,” is the headline of a clever column by Lisa Suennen on The Health Care Blog.

Her premise:  if a company can get a $15m venture fund investment to interpret rap lyrics, why isn’t anyone hitting on what she calls the “number one market opportunity: explaining healthcare speak to the masses.”

“Have you ever seen an Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company?” she asks. She also cites as examples a document for public comment issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and the AMA website’s FAQ about HIPAA.

Read it and weep.
