Eighteen months after an initial survey of prices at hospitals in Massachusetts, Pioneer Institute conducted a follow-up survey of
all but one of the hospitals from the first survey to see if there had been any change in the performance of these institutions since their last assessment. Initial survey calls were conducted between September 20th and November 2nd, 2016. While this second survey shows some improvements among Massachusetts hospitals when it comes to price transparency, there is still a lot of hard work to be done to create a culture of price transparency. Also, the survey reveals wide price variations.
