HCCI's President and CEO Niall Brennan was featured in a an article on CMS's price transparency rule. From the article:
"It's 'frustratingly incomplete,' said Niall Brennan, president and CEO of the Health Care Cost Institute, which compiles claims data from big payers including Aetna and Kaiser Permanente.
'There is no real mechanism to figure out how many hospitals complied with the regulations,' Brennan said, causing him and other researchers to 'laboriously' search thousands of websites. He described it as the biggest drawback to the rule and wished the information had to be sent to CMS, as well."
