Kaiser Family Foundation Launches Health Policy News Service

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

Despite the ongoing financial turmoil in the media industry and cutbacks in newsroom, topics such as health reform are being given in-depth coverage, thanks to a new health policy news service, kaiserhealthnews.org. Launched earlier this week by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the niche news site provides a new source of reporting and examines the nation’s health care system from a consumer perspective. The site covers complex health policy issues and major developments in kaiserhealthnews.org features contributions from a wide array of leading health policy commentators and independent journalists, and includes:
  • a daily health policy report
  • original programming from Kaiser’s broadcast studio
  • regular blog and columns from contributing writers and experts
  • multimedia content through partnerships with leading news organizations, including The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, NPR News and The New Republic
  • bookmaking and content-sharing tools.
The site is notable for its not-for-profit business model and in-depth, public service journalism. All content is available free of charge to other news organizations and the public. The site is primarily funded by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a non-partisan, non-profit, private operating foundation dedicated to producing and communicating analysis and information on health issues.
