HPIO releases revamped health transparency resource page

The Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s newly updated healthcare cost and quality data transparency resource page includes federal, state and local-level healthcare cost and quality datasets, tools and reporting, as well as information on organizations setting healthcare quality standards.

In 2012, HPIO released its first Health Data Transparency Basics publication which provides an overview of the availability of transparent, accessible health data and discusses how access to information on price and quality impacts consumer choice, quality of care, healthcare spending and health outcomes. Due to growing interest in the topic, HPIO released a second iteration of the publication in 2016, Healthcare Data Transparency Basics, which explores the rationale for healthcare price transparency, the challenges it presents and potential policy approaches at the state level to increase transparency.
