    Propublica are an organisation in the US that focus quite heavily on data-driven / accountability-type journalism, and this project they’ve put out is really interesting. Essentially if the data is available they’ve pulled together lots of data on doctors in the US, things like prescribing habits, whether they’ve been paid by any drug companies, and a few more details. I’m not in the US but enjoyed putting in a few doctors that I’ve heard about on forums etc.
