Through our team’s work, we will:

  • Identify the drivers of health care costs
  • Develop strategies to reduce these costs
  • This will pave the way for greater health care transparency and value, and provide critical information to key stakeholders to improve care and reduce costs.

As we move forward, our HRCMT team will use this internal website as a repository for project related documentation. As our work evolves and we finalize materials, we will also post them on the NRHI Member Portal as a means of sharing our progress, lessons learned and other relevant materials with other NRHI members.

Our hope is that we can provide those who are interested in implementing cost transparency in their communities with insight about the key issues, challenges and strategies they can be thinking about today to prepare for a more accelerated implementation in the future. For those who have already implemented cost transparency locally, we will provide forums to exchange information about each others efforts to identify opportunities for collaboration.
