As you know from a couple of my earlier posts, I am exploring the ins and outs of price transparency in health care. Here is a nice post by William Pierce in the Huffington Post that pulls together a number of nice links while musing about the complexities of this issue.
Pierce’s post makes mention of one particular article I want to mention now, one from the Washington Post that discusses how price transparency might play out in the market for, of all things, ankle MRIs. It also discusses the role that private companies hope to play in getting consumers better information about both price and quality. The times, they are a changing!
