Healthcare System Transparency
The Arkansas APCD provides consumer-friendly, highly accessible healthcare information about the price of specific medical services based on data collected and analyzed. There will be extensive benefits for consumers, healthcare providers, state agencies, insurers, policymakers, and healthcare researchers. The proposed work will roll out in two phases. At maturity, the APCD will produce a web-based, user-friendly, interactive tool that shows price and quality variation by geography and site-of-service for common procedures.
