Price and Quality Transparency is Coming: What Does It Mean?

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT

This session will discuss the trending topic of healthcare transparency as it relates to providers, payers and consumers. We will review the details and potential impact of the June 24, 2019 Presidential Executive Order, House and Senate legislation currently being debated, and new state legislation (TN and VA), all intended to better enable consumers to more effectively choose and pay for health services.

We will discuss how these overarching initiatives help support value-based care initiatives, and the overall consumer experience. We will also discuss the related need to provide consumers with accurate out-of-pocket and total cost amounts prior to care delivery. This up-front price transparency can help foster an improved patient/provider relationship and reduce financial risk for both. This session will share insights from health policy and health information technology professionals on how to address the many challenges associated with the increasing "retailization" of healthcare and outline key considerations payers and providers need to address for future success.
