Track the Money: Leveraging platforms such as | Webinar

Karl Stark, an experienced journalist and director of content strategy at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, is set to lead a four-part series on healthcare finance called “Follow the Money.” The series is created in collaboration with Investigative Reporters and Editors and aims to equip journalists with the necessary tools to report on hospitals’ financial well-being.

Stark has spent over thirty years in journalism, holding positions such as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer. 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.”

The Follow the Money series is available for free to journalists thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation. During his session at AHCJ’s annual meeting, Stark will demonstrate how to use AHCJ’s site and other tools to report on hospitals’ financial health.
