Comparison Shopping

Consumer-driven health care, or consumerism, revolves around the idea that consumers should be able to make informed choices about their medical care based on price and quality information. The eventual goal is for well-informed health care consumers to compare prices—choosing more wisely and ultimately lowering overall health care costs for everyone. However, the apples-to-apples comparison used for most products or services is mostly useless in the health care marketplace.
