This article is a bombshell.  It is one thing for me to write on this blog that I think the healthcare price transparency movement is growing and unstoppable.  It is another thing for a representative of the big hospitals to say that those who don’t embrace price transparency may go out of business!  OK.  Now you are going back to click on the link aren’t you?!

This is quite an admission and something for everyone to celebrate.  It also shows, I think that this is happening without legislators forcing the issue, a move that will likely only screw things up.
