Despite their increasing popularity, many online health care transparency tools are relatively new and vary widely in the information contained and how it is displayed. With NYSHealth funding, HonestHealth conducted an inventory of more than 230 health care transparency tools across the United States. The resulting interactive, online database evaluates tools in four categories: physicians, hospitals, prescription drug pricing, and health insurance purchasing.
An accompanying report prepared by the Human Services Research Institute, “Advancing Health Care Transparency for Consumers: A National Inventory of Tools to Guide State Policy,” summarizes key findings from the inventory and offers best practices and recommendations for New York State to consider for new or existing tools.
