J.D. Kleinke is a medical economist, author, health care information technology pioneer, and leading advocate for a smarter, data-driven, post-partisan health care system.

He has been instrumental in the creation of four health care information organizations; served as a health care business columnist for the Wall Street Journal; advised both sides of the political aisle on pragmatic approaches to health policy and legislation; and served on the Boards of several public and privately held health care companies.

J.D. is a regular contributor to the policy journal, Health Affairs. His work has also appeared in JAMA, Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, the British Medical Journal, Modern Healthcare, and numerous other publications. His books, Bleeding Edge: The Business of Health Care in the New Century and Oxymorons: The Myth of a U.S. Health Care System are required reading in many physician-executive MBA programs and health administration graduate in the U.S. His third book, Catching Babies - a novel about the training and culture of obstetrician/gynecologists - will be published in November.

For audiences across the health care, medical, corporate, policy and patient communities, J.D. provides a no-nonsense, practical, and often humorous look at the collision of government reform, increasing patient economic empowerment, and emerging information and medical technologies – and their combined effects on the future challenges and opportunities for today's health care organization.
