Policymakers and health care delivery systems are increasingly looking to price transparency as a promising approach for controlling health care costs. Much of this attention has focused on effective strategies for providing price and quality information to consumers who may use it to make more cost-conscious decisions about where, how, and when to seek care. Yet as a recent article in The New York Times explains, health care consumers aren’t the only ones for whom price information may be useful: Doctors also lack basic information about the cost of health care tests and procedures.
We support research projects that will provide public and private decision makers with usable and timely information on health care policy, financing, and market developments. The HCFO program will award its final grants in 2015. Please contact us at 202-292-6736 prior to submitting a proposal.
