The “Follow the Money” series is a four-part initiative created by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors to help journalists uncover the business side of healthcare. 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 session on reporting on hospitals’ financial well-being using AHCJ’s hospitalfinances.org site and other tools.

The series is available for free to journalists thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation. Karl Stark’s work at LDI focuses on encouraging fellowship writers to communicate their research to the public. Prior to his current role, he spent over thirty years as a 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 AHCJ and is a co-author of their “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists.” His session on covering hospital finances is always a highlight at AHCJ’s annual meeting. Karl is a graduate of Yale University where he was a varsity tennis player and skated alongside his sister Julie.
