Description

The Partners Effect is a series that "focuses on an out-of-balance healthcare finance system that rewards a few big hospitals and pays them far more for work, even when there is no evidence that the higher-priced care produces healthier patients. The stories detail how New England's biggest healthcare network, Partners HealthCare, is increasingly using its marketplace clout to export its expensive brand of medicine into the suburbs, imperiling community hospitals, and how its cozy relationship with the state's largest insurer has helped to trigger a healthcare cost crisis.
