Healthcare consumers and purchasers are increasingly demanding transparency in healthcare costs and quality to control costs and improve clinical outcomes. In this age of consumer-driven healthcare and health savings accounts, consumers need information about quality and pricing since the quality of care can vary tremendously from one facility to another and wide variations in care can occur even within the same practice setting. At the same time, while the level and quality of service may be comparable, huge differences in price can occur depending upon the provider performing the procedure.

Join us during "Meeting the Demands of Healthcare Transparency in Pricing and Quality," a September 14, 2005 audio conference, will examine how organizations are achieving transparency in healthcare costs and quality.
