Our American States Podcast: Price Transparency in Health Care

HCCI's President and CEO Niall Brennan was featured in an episode of a podcast produced by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

From the podcast description: "The guest on the podcast is an expert in the area of health data and analytics. Niall Brennan is the president and CEO of the Health Care Cost Institute, a nonprofit that focuses on data to analyze key issues affecting the U.S. health care system. Brennan previously was chief data officer for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Brennan discusses the pros and cons of price transparency, examples of where it's been effective and his skepticism about the individual consumer's use of the information. He also shares some surprising examples of price variation for the same medical procedure in the same area—even in the same hospital group."
