Track the Money: Leveraging platforms such as | Webinar

Journalists looking to tell the story of the business side of healthcare are in luck. AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors have created a four-part series called “Follow the Money,” which is available for free, thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation.

The first webinar in the series takes place on March 29th, and will be led by 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. In his session, Stark will demonstrate how to use AHCJ’s site and other tools to report on hospitals’ financial well-being.

Stark’s work at LDI focuses on encouraging LDI Fellows to write for the public. Prior to his current role, he spent over thirty years at The Philadelphia Inquirer, holding positions such as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor. His investigative reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system led to the indictment of its top three executives. Stark has also been President of the Association of Health Care Journalists and is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists.” His session on covering hospital finances is a highlight at AHCJ’s annual meeting. He is a graduate of Yale University, where he was a varsity tennis player and competed in skating alongside his sister Julie.
