Patient Access to their health information and real prices means:
Patients and businesses can make more informed choices about what care they receive and who provides it before receiving that care. Free, real-time access to their electronic medical records will allow them to better manage their health and budget, to share with whomever they please, and to save valuable time away from work or home.
Tech Companies can finally bring the customer-focused revolution to healthcare, just as they’ve brought us Google, Amazon, and Uber. Price transparency allows innovators to create new tools and services that help patients become smarter, better-educated consumers.
Physicians can make treatment and medication decisions with the patient’s complete health information, prevent duplication of work, and ensure that patients will be able to afford and follow through on treatments, medications and recommended specialists. All of this means better care, better patient health, and lower overall health expenses.
