SPOTLIGHT

Cara Buckley of the New York Times writes about the closing of New York’s famed Chelsea Hotel.

Bruce Japsen of the Chicago Tribune talks with Dr. Howard Bauchner, the new editor of the Journal of the American Medical Assn., who is trying to bring the old and venerated journal into the Digital Age.

Bauchner said he will pursue a strategy of “intelligent innovation” for the journal, looking at ways to get information to doctors and consumers through several new platforms, such as social media, video and other digital forms.

Bauchner is also considering having the journal experiment with shorter, condensed articles, to better engage busy physicians who can take advantage of a “more CliffNotes version.” An original article might remain 2,500 to 3,000 words, but an online version of 500 words, with less background information but still providing “clinical nuggets,” would also be available to readers.
