There’s a new report from CHCF, written by Katy Hendrickson at Forrester, it’s called (pdf) Health Care Cost Comparison Tools: A market under construction. I’ve read it and it does suggest that something is slowly happening in the Submio/Health Grades world, but that it’s mostly about a few plans trying to steer consumers around based on quality….we are a long, long way from price transparency. Stll def worth a read if you’re all interested in consumerism, transparency or health care cost and quality. And apparently some of you are
There’s also a companion report out called Consumers in Health Care: Creating Decision-Support Tools That Work . I haven’t read that one yet. Comments please from anyone who does.
