Cost and Quality Measures
  Knowing the cost and the relative value of your healthcare purchases and investments is a new concept. Only recently has the healthcare profession been systematically measuring and reporting on quality. Reporting on cost in a way that is understandable is also very new to healthcare. As consumers become increasingly responsible for the out of pocket costs for their healthcare goods and services the information found in this area will be more relevant.

Have information reported by providers on their objective measures of quality such as the ability to control blood pressure, diabetes or other common conditions. Where available actual costs for common procedures or office visits is provided.
Have information on published costs and quality of common hospital based procedures or for the treatment of common conditions within hospital.
