If you have an opinion you'd like to share with MODERN HEALTHCARE readers, we'd like to from you. But before you begin writing for our Commentary department, we want to make sure your idea matches our needs. Please submit a 100-word summary to help us evaluate your idea. As you develop your topic and your summary, keep in mind that our primary readers are healthcare executives in hospitals, HMOs and medical group clinics. Commentary topics should relate to those readers and to MODERN HEALTHCARE news coverage. They should express a strong point of view rather than provide "how to" information.
Summaries should outline:
* The topic you propose.
* How your topic relates to our current news coverage.
* How your topic relates to our readers.
Mail your summary to MODERN HEALTHCARE, Commentary Editor, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill., 60611, or fax it to 312-280-3183.
We will notify you soon about whether your idea meets our needs.
