Value Driven Healthcare
Search for pricing for an MRI for a 13 year old female patient complaining of headaches. Determine the cost of this procedure to you, and what the cost is to the insurance provider. Do a price comparison against three other facilities offering the same service. Provide a chart that summarizes the price differences.
Reflect on your experience and summarize the following: 1. How long did this take? How comfortable would you be if you actually had to purchase these services in determining the value for services? Ie. How do you know what you received was worth the money you paid? Comment on your experiences in finding the information and the relationship to price transparency.
Your paper should include the following:
10-12 pages in length, not including the title and reference pages.
10 references cited in the assignment. Remember, you must support your thinking/opinions and prior knowledge with references; all facts must be supported; in-text references used throughout the assignment must be included in an APA-formatted reference list. –( References should be current not more than 5 years old.)
