“Patients are being asked to take on an increasingly significant share of the payment for healthcare services. They are looking for higher value providers: those that offer quality services at a fair price,” Richard Gundling, VP of healthcare financial practices at HFMA, said in an email exchange. “It is impossible for them to make decisions about the value of a provider without having price as a component.”
