I just stumbled upon a great app that is helping individuals become better consumers of health care AND understand the piles of health care related paper work sent to their homes. It is available at: CakeHealth.com
If we are to move in the direction of more consumer driven health care, we will need LOTS more where this came from. BCBS of MA has mentioned an app they are developing to help control costs by directing patients to nearby hospitals with lower rates. So lets hope other local insurers get on board and make this information available to their members in some form in the future.
