Description

“Calculated Care” is The Wall Street Journal's investigation into the hidden ways financial incentives, rather than medical need, can shape the care that patients receive in America's health-care institutions. This project combined sophisticated data analysis with shoe-leather reporting to reveal business practices that are endemic to our health-care system—but that only became apparent through the plumbing of government data not readily available to the public. These practices cost the tax-payer-funded Medicare system billions of additional dollars without clear benefit to patients—and, as the Journal's reporting showed, even to their detriment.
