Massachusetts medical costs online

Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney announced in a press release Oct. 18 that consumers can now access information on the cost and quality of medical procedures in the state online. Massachusetts annually collects data about its healthcare services but that information has remained in its state agencies. While a few states already provide information on the quality of health services, Massachusetts is the first to provide cost data. The website will eventually include information on nursing homes, physicians, and pharmacies. "Working towards greater transparency benefits consumers and helps to strengthen our entire healthcare system," said Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary Tim Murphy.
