Everywhere physicians order things – in restaurants, catalogs, online, etc. – there is price transparency, so that a proper value judgment can be made. If the menu and the wine list at a nice resturant had no prices and we knew someone else was paying the bill – would dinner be more expensive? Most likely, yes! Yet, this is the status quo in inpatient care.

Medical radiation cost and effects

Providing costs to clinicians at the time of ordering has a substantial impact on behavior (Feldman 2013). The Price Lookup Smart Ribbon provides clinicians with a simple tool to check and compare costs (not hospital charges) of different medications, labs or radiological tests prior to ordering one.

Empowering clinicians with real-time, patient-specific hospital cost and iatrogenic risk data at the point of care allows clinicians to make the best cost/benefit decisions for their patients.
