New Report Features Increasing the give and take.
We introduce several new editorial developments in this issue aimed at increasing the conversational give-and-take that appears in our pages. First, we are moving our editorial, Another Voice, to a spot following the article it addresses, which allows us to experiment with it a bit, letting it run longer and soliciting multiple editorials—“Other Voices.” Second, our letters section has been rebranded “Exchange” to acknowledge the short essay section that, over the years, it has grown to be. And finally, this issue includes, as a supplement, a guest-edited Special Report that takes up the idea of a “learning health care system.” It is our hope and plan that this will be the first in an occasional series of externally sponsored Special Reports, and we welcome proposals for additional installments in the series.
