About our journalism
C-HIT is a web-based news service that serves three main purposes:
To fill a void in health, safety and medical coverage by producing a steady stream of news stories, many of them investigative, that focus on systemic problems within the healthcare system that affect real people – ie, the quality of care in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and other facilities; regulatory actions by government agencies; mental health treatment issues involving children and adults; and healthcare reform, including coverage of the insurance industry, the impact on consumers and the elderly.
To provide regular coverage of healthcare issues faced by veterans, especially those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. C-HIT journalists have extensive experience in covering veterans’ health issues.
To provide citizens with an independent, continually updated and user-friendly database that empowers consumers to access information from regulatory agencies and other sources on healthcare facilities and providers.
