Study: Hospital Compare Website Helps Reduce Prices
A new study published in Health Affairs finds that more public reporting on hospital quality could help lower hospital prices. The study compares hospital quality data for two common procedures before and after CMS launched its public reporting website Hospital Compare.
- "Hospital Report Cards 'Blunt' Price Hikes" (Neuhauser, U.S. News & World Report, 1/5).
- "Hospital Quality Reporting May Hold Down Prices" (Evans, Modern Healthcare, 1/5).
