Want a quick way to skim the Health Care Reform Bill in Congress? Here’s help.

HR 3962: Affordable Health Care for America Act is 1,990 pages long, says attorney Bob Coffield a recent Health Care Law Blog post. To help you grasp the major themes quickly, Coffield has made a word cloud that captures words the bill mentions most frequently. Let’s hear it for a lawyer who actually likes to make things simple for the rest of us.

Of interest to HIT types: The bill mentions the word ‘privacy’ 28 times, Coffield points out. ‘Insurance’ is mentioned 552 times, and ‘consumer’ crops up 36 times. Guess we know who has the most lobbyists.
