Propublica: In Dialysis, Life-Saving Care at Great Risk and Cost

Propublica: In Dialysis, Life-Saving Care at Great Risk and Cost

Shares

Hey, the folks at ProPublica do true public service media, funded philanthropically and according to a strict code of ethics. The code is a really big deal; to me, it's a commitment to traditional journalism values like fact checking and the separation of reporting and advertising. (Yes, I'm no journalist, but this I get.)

Here they update us on big health issue:

The federal government's system for dialysis care in this country is not good for either patients or taxpayers.  A new investigation from ProPublica, beginning today, shows why.  In days to come, ProPublica will release data on varying levels of quality care at dialysis facilities that the government has long insisted on keeping secret.
