Healthcare Transparency Index
Cost and Cost Variability
Change Healthcare's Healthcare Transparency Index (HCTI) is a measure of the costs and cost variability of different healthcare services that healthcare consumers purchase on a recurring basis. The cost data comes from the aggregated medical claims of all Change Healthcare clients, which has geographic coverage that spans nationally. This publication of the HCTI includes a new Transparency Matrix that assigns services to high or low cost and cost variability quadrants and focuses services performed during the fourth quarter of 2013.
