Course Syllabus & Schedule

Module 1

Day 1

Intro, Legislation and Rules, and the New Payer/Provider Landscape

(8/21, 6-7 PM ET)

We’ll start by describing what price transparency really means in healthcare and how we got to where we are in 2023. That will take us into rules and laws (and, of course, delays), legislation, what kind of rates get reported, and what price transparency data looks like so far. We’ll also discuss the adoption curve and how transparency has changed the payer/provider landscape.

Module 2

Day 2

Estimates and Use Cases

(8/22, 6-7 PM ET)

In this session, we’ll review some of the more patient-focused aspects of price transparency – estimates. Between ‘shoppable services,’ patient estimate tools, good faith estimates and advance explanations of benefits, there may be a future where the patient gets more of a guarantee than an estimate. We’ll also dive deeper into use cases for price transparency data. From market expansion, to small providers competing with hospitals and payers competing with each other, data has made it less of a guessing game and, in many cases, is leveling the playing field for stakeholders across the healthcare landscape.

Module 3

Day 3

Technical components of price transparency data

(8/23, 6-7 PM ET)

This will be a more technical session focusing on machine-readable files from both hospitals and payers and the challenges in parsing, processing, and surfacing the underlying data. We’ll talk about how we’ve made the data useful so far, and how it could be more useful in the future.
