New ICIJ Project Tracks Deadly Medical Devices

The Implant Files, a new joint investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, teams up 250 reporters and data specialists from 58 news organizations in 36 countries. The project filed over 1,500 public records requests and collected some eight million device-related health records on medical implants, which are poorly regulated from country to country. To track the problem, ICIJ created its own International Medical Devices Database with more than 70,000 safety alerts and reports from 11 countries.
