Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag is expected to help President Barack Obama in setting priorities for overhauling the health care system, writes Jeff Goldsmith in the Health Affairs Blog.

The report offers hints on the direction that the Obama administration may take to carry out its reform agenda, Goldsmith says.
