Employers cannot effectively purchase and employees cannot effectively access heath and medical care services without information on both quality and price. CBGH – working with corporate partners – can shine light on what is otherwise an opaque market.
- Health Care BlueBook. Prices for routine diagnostic and medical procedures in Colorado routinely vary by 500% or more — even within the same network and health plan. Yet few, if any, employees know how much health services should cost and are shopping in the dark for their care. Healthcare Bluebook makes it easy for your employees to both know the Fair Price for medical procedures and find the nearest healthcare providers that offer fair prices — all in just a few clicks.
- Quantros “CareChex.” CBGH members have access to CareChex®, an innovative medical quality rating system designed to assist providers and purchasers in evaluating the quality of inpatient care using a patent pending quality scoring system which integrates the most reliable quality indicators available in the industry into a single, multi-dimensional, composite score and rating. CareChex includes two software modules: the Physician Quality Rating Analysis and the Hospital Quality Rating Analysis™
- Colorado Hospital Pricing Analysis.
The Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) is a member and partnered with CBGH to provide new data and analytic support to employers across the state. By combining services, our organizations intend to bolster the work of employers seeking to lower health costs and improve the health of their employees. CIVHC and CBGH have collaborated for a number of years, however, this partnership marks the first formal agreement between the two organizations to combine data and analytic services. Synergistic goals to advance health care and support employers who can drive value into the system made this step a natural evolution for the two organizations.
