Reporting on the business of health care

Financial documentsCovering the business of health care is a challenge, whether reporting on insurance companies, service providers, consumers, pharmaceutical companies or other aspects. Various parts of the health care industry are regulated by federal, state and local governments. They have pricing structures that vary widely and are a mystery to most consumers.

There is scarcely any area of business that is untouched by health care, yet the industry is unlike most any other business.

AHCJ member Tammy Worth has written a guide to to help reporters tackle this complex topic – including what kinds of documents to look for and what they will tell you – as well as a list of resources and a glossary of terms to help navigate the jargon that comes with the beat.
