President Trump’s healthcare executive order includes beginning of price transparency mandate

by admin 0 Comments

Mandating price transparency has begun. President Trump’s executive order on healthcare includes the following language in Section 1.c.iii:

“(c) My Administration will also continue to focus on promoting competition in healthcare markets and limiting excessive consolidation throughout the healthcare system. To the extent consistent with law, government rules and guidelines affecting the United States healthcare system should:

(iii) improve access to and the quality of information that Americans need to make informed healthcare decisions, including data about healthcare prices and outcomes, while minimizing reporting burdens on affected plans, providers, or payers.”[1] (Bold type ours.)

Price transparency is coming. HealthQRS can help you be ready. We have solutions to provide true price transparency online in an e-commerce medical marketplace, during scheduling and at the point of service.

We offer a pre-scheduling/collection service to help hospitals and physician practices collect patient out-of-pocket expenses upfront. This solution interfaces with virtually any existing practice management or hospital management system. Our new pre-scheduling/collection service provides a call center staff to you and can handle your claims submission, claims status inquiry, ERA processing and online claim corrections. If you want to perform the functions with your own staff our point of service/pre-scheduling solution has all this functionality plus medical necessity included (except the claims services).

If you use our point-of-service solution for all registrations, then you receive our e-commerce medical marketplace solution at no additional cost. And HealthQRS has developed the only complete e-commerce medical marketplace platform on the market. The e-commerce functionality can be deployed when you are ready. Our e-commerce medical marketplace gives people a way to shop, schedule and pay for healthcare procedures and services from their smartphones, tablets or computers. HealthQRS’ platform allows them to instantly access their network, see a list of procedures and providers in order of least to most expensive, select a location, schedule the appointment and pay for it all from the app.

We have all of this ready to go for you right now and can have you set up in a matter of weeks at the point-of-service (bricks and mortar) and online (e-commerce marketplace). And because we are a software as a service (SaaS), you don’t incur any capital expenses, only a low monthly fee.

Now is the time to get your infrastructure in place to provide price transparency and an easy-to-use shopping experience for consumers, businesses and their employees. We invite you to learn more about HealthQRS and our e-commerce medical marketplace and how we can help you. We have over 12 years of experience developing healthcare retail experiences for consumers and our founders have over 50 combined years of e-commerce experience.
