Unraveling the Business Side of Healthcare: The “Follow the Money” Series Returns, Led by Veteran Journalist Karl Stark

Track the Money: Leveraging platforms such as HospitalFinances.org | Webinar

The “Follow the Money” series is a four-part series created by the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) and Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) to help journalists tell the story of healthcare’s business side. Karl Stark, an AHCJ member and Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, will lead the first webinar in the series.

During his session, Stark will demonstrate how to use AHCJ’s hospitalfinances.org site and other tools to report on hospitals’ financial well-being. His work at LDI focuses on encouraging Fellows to write for the public, and he has over thirty years of experience as a journalist, including stints as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Stark’s investigative reporting on Allegheny health system led to the indictment of its top three executives, and he has also served as President of AHCJ. He is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists,” and his session on covering hospital finances is highly anticipated at AHCJ’s annual meeting.

The “Follow the Money” series is available to journalists for free thanks to generous support from the NIHCM Foundation. This article was written by a journalist who rewrote an original article with unique order, text shuffling between paragraphs and creating new information making it a different one altogether.
