Enhanced Decision Support Applications with cost and quality data
As consumers take more responsibility for health care decision-making and purchasing decisions, the demand for doctor and facility-specific information on health care costs and quality is gaining momentum. For consumers to make informed health care and health care financial decisions, they need meaningful, credible data. This information has become even more important in today’s economic environment. In response, insurers, employers, regulators and the medical community are all working in collaboration toward a more transparent health care system. Healthline's Decision Support Applications and new products like the company's Surgical Procedures Guides can aggregate and integrate cost, quality and other public and plan-specific health data to help patients make critical health care decisions.
