Providing cost, quality, and other information before treatment lowers costs and improves outcomes. The more accurate, personalized, and relevant the data, the better healthcare works.
Many people are surprised to learn that in healthcare, there is no correlation between cost and quality. Prices for medical services can vary greatly -even for the same procedure, in the same area, within the same network. Quality and outcomes can vary just as greatly, with no relationship to price. The only way to know whether you're getting good care at a reasonable price is to see the data. Castlight provides employees with the information they need about cost and quality to choose the best care at the best price.
Healthcare transparency can help you improve the health care your employees receive, while enabling you to control skyrocketing medical costs. It also leads to more engaged, activated employees.
With more large employers now offering high-deductible health plans, consumers are faced with increasingly large out-of-pocket expenses. Access to price and quality information helps employees save money. It also empowers them to get the best care.
Greater transparency means that high-quality health care providers will receive the recognition they deserve for the excellent care they deliver.
