Consumer-centric evaluation of healthcare price and quality transparency tools

Extrait du résumé de recherche de Lynn Quincy, Christine Stanik, and Dakota Staren, en date du 19 avril 2019. States and other stakeholders are developing public-facing healthcare price and quality tools to help consumers navigate the healthcare marketplace. Some proponents expect these web-based tools will drive value in the health system by enabling consumers to make informed choices about where and from whom they receive care. Many transparency tools have been launched in recent years (by state entities and insurers) and a variety of stakeholders are eager to learn which tools are best. This has led researchers at organizations such as New York State Health Foundation, Consumer Reports and Altarum to evaluate these tools for their functionality and usefulness.
