Suzanne catches up with Niall Brennan, President and CEO of the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI), to ask the tough questions on price and utilization data for employee-sponsored health care. If you’re interested in understanding what is driving health care costs and using data to figure out the best ways to curtail spending growth, then this episode is for you!
Health care leader Niall Brennan has championed price transparency throughout his career, having served as a Senior Analyst at the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission and Chief Data Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and now leading a non-profit dedicated to increasing transparency in health care costs. He and Suzanne don’t shy away from big issues like provider consolidation and the high-launch prices of new pharmaceuticals during this podcast. They ground their discussion on research from the Health Care Cost Institute’s database on Medicare and employer-sponsored health plan utilization and prices.
