HHS Value Driven Healthcare Event

HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt held a value driven health care event today. “Less than a year after launching his Value-Driven Health Care [A/K/A transparency] Initiative, Secretary Leavitt announced that more than 100 million Americans are now served by health plans that are committed to providing consumers with transparent quality and cost information. The federal government; half of the states; about 775 employers, including almost half of the top 200 U.S. corporations; and numerous unions, communities, doctors and hospitals have joined the movement.”
