Hospital Price Transparency Study Round 4
Our health care system consumes vast economic resources without producing commensurate health benefits. Employers, as purchasers of health benefits, have typically not played an active role in promoting the value of care or agreed on a strategy for doing it.
While the report from Round 3 of the hospital price transparency study includes hospitals in all 50 states, there is still work to be done. In Round 4, RAND is increasing the number of hospitals and amount of claims data under analysis.
