Navigating Cost Transparency Panel Discussion

Even when diligent about engaging stakeholders and obtaining buy-in, when comparative healthcare costs are released publicly, people pay attention. Hear from those who’ve applied rigorous data quality assessments to ensure healthcare cost reporting will stand up to public scrutiny and how they navigated the path forward within and across regions. This is not just a technical exercise and requires the leadership of a trusted, neutral convener to bring all affected stakeholders together, to one table, to move the transparency agenda forward in a community.
