Health Care Workshop, Project No. P131207: In December 2013, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, with support from the Changes in Health Care Financing and Organization (HCFO) initiative managed by AcademyHealth, announced six grants that will explore price transparency initiatives in U.S. health care. The grants aim to provide reliable, generalizable information to policymakers and delivery system leaders and to help accelerate progress toward transparency and the effective use of price information. The projects examine the effectiveness of price transparency initiatives targeting providers and consumers and the role of price transparency at the market level. Overviews of each project are available at the following link: http://www.hcfo.org/news/new-grants-examine-use-price-data-health-care Please contact Bonnie Austin, HCFO Deputy Director, for more information on these grants and timing for release of findings: [redacted] or [redacted].
