Public Paychecks: The Kansas City area's 99 highest-paid health system and hospital employees
Who gets the largest paychecks at hospitals in the Kansas City area? We wondered, too, so we looked into it.

Composite risk scores have been used for decades to identify disease risk and health status in the general population.

Framingham Risk Score, the gold standard for predicting the likelihood of heart disease, predicts hospitalizations with about 56% accuracy.
