Panel description: When does a reporter need to look for data-savvy experts to analyze data and frame questions to get the best stories out of large datasets? Lance Williams will use his recent experience working with precision journalism expert Steve Doig and reporters Christina Jewett and Monica Lam to ferret out shoddy and costly Medicare billing by a Southern California hospital chain to demonstrate when and how to work with experts in data analysis.
