Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com Adds Health Care to Policy Chan­nel Of­fer­ings as Part of Site Re­design
Sam Baker to Lead Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care

WASH­ING­TON, D.C., Oct. 29, 2013 — As the Obama Ad­min­is­tra­tion con­tin­ues to ad­dress the prob­lems around the im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act and the Health­care.gov site, Na­tion­al Journ­al de­b­uted a new di­git­al chan­nel ded­ic­ated to health care policy. Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care provides com­pre­hens­ive, up to the minute cov­er­age and ana­lys­is of what’s trend­ing in the health care policy arena. Cov­er­age is led by health care re­port­er Sam Baker, who re­cently joined Na­tion­al Journ­al from The Hill. Cor­res­pond­ents Soph­ie No­vack and Clara Rit­ger are also con­trib­ut­ing to the ver­tic­al along with oth­ers in the news­room, giv­en the scope of the is­sue.

“Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care of­fers high-util­ity re­port­ing and ana­lys­is for Na­tion­al Journ­al read­ers, from our mem­bers to our sub­scribers to any­one else need­ing com­pre­hens­ive cov­er­age of health care re­lated is­sues,” said Tim Grieve, Na­tion­al Journ­al’s Ed­it­or-in-Chief. “And Sam Baker is the ideal journ­al­ist to lead this ef­fort.”

An es­tab­lished and re­spec­ted health care policy journ­al­ist in Wash­ing­ton, Baker has been cov­er­ing health care for over 6 years, re­port­ing on the pas­sage and early im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act at In­side Health Policy and later at The Hill.

A daily email news­let­ter, Health Care Edge, will com­ple­ment the di­git­al re­port­ing and will be avail­able at no cost. “With the Health Care Edge, we’ll be able to reach a wider audi­ence that’s both plugged in and curi­ous, but for whom the full suite of products and premi­ums that we provide for our mem­bers isn’t ne­ces­sary,” ad­ded Grieve.

The new Health Care chan­nel fol­lows Na­tion­al Journ­al En­ergy, which was in­tro­duced Oc­to­ber 1 as part of the roll-out of Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com’s lar­ger re­design. It fea­tures re­port­ing and ana­lys­is from Amy Harder, Cor­al Dav­en­port, Alex Brown, Clare For­an and Patrick Re­is. Harder also leads the daily news­let­ter, En­ergy Edge, which, like its health care coun­ter­part, is a free, opt-in product and fea­tures Harder’s take on what’s trend­ing in en­ergy plus high-util­ity sum­mar­ies of the day’s news and events.

The launch of Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care and Na­tion­al Journ­al En­ergy build on the sus­tained, dra­mat­ic growth hap­pen­ing throughout the pub­lic­a­tion. Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com set an all-time re­cord for web­site traffic in Septem­ber, and Oc­to­ber’s traffic is ex­pec­ted to be nearly double what it was in the first part of 2013.
