Medical Moolah

The rising price of medical supplies is one reason consumer health care costs are soaring. In "Hijacking at the Hospital," Pablo Lastra of the Fort Worth Weekly explores the hidden power of Novation, a North Texas firm that is the nation's biggest broker of hospital and medical supplies. In rich detail, Lastra explains how the practices of Novation, which is the subject of several lawsuits and a congressional investigation, and other group purchasing organizations like it have a huge impact on hospital costs. Lastra's story is a good example of an important investigation done by a small paper.
