Unraveling the Financial Health of Hospitals: AHCJ and IREI Partner for a Four-Part Webinar Series

Tracking the Money Trail: Maximizing Your Finances with HospitalFinances.org | Webinar

Karl Stark, the Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, will be leading a four-part series called “Follow the Money” that is produced by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors. This webinar is designed to equip journalists with the tools they need to report on the big business of health care. The first session will take place on January 13th and will focus on using AHCJ’s hospitalfinances.org site and other tools to report stories about hospitals’ financial health.

Karl Stark has a long history in journalism, having worked for more than three decades at the Philadelphia Inquirer. He served as Health Editor, Business News Editor and National/Foreign Editor, among other positions. His reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system helped lead to indictments of the top three executives. He is also a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists” and leads a session on covering hospital finances at AHCJ’s annual meeting.

The Follow the Money series is free for all journalists thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation. This webinar is an excellent opportunity for journalists to learn how to tell compelling stories about hospitals’ financial health and gain access to valuable resources that can help them do their job more effectively.
