Strategic Partnership Delivers Healthcare Price Transparency to Consumers and Helps Medical Providers Comply with the Price Transparency Rule
FRISCO, Texas, June 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — BioDatAi, the healthcare subsidiary of Dallas-based Economic Transformation Technologies (ETT), an accelerator and integrator of innovative technologies, announced it has launched its Intelligent Interoperability Platform (PaaS) and a new strategic partnership with Self Pay Medical to provide a platform for healthcare price transparency that is intuitive for the consumer to use and easy for healthcare providers to openly share pricing for their services.
“In the U.S., the cost of healthcare has been growing exponentially, with the average expenditure on health-related services increasing at twice the rate of household income,” stated Kelly Cook, CEO of BioDatAi, which is focused on delivering new, innovative healthcare services and solutions that address the ever-changing needs of the global healthcare marketplace.
“Unlike most markets, healthcare has not been transparent with consumer price prior to services being rendered. As many Americans are funding healthcare out of their own pocket, they deserve to have price transparency,” added Cook. “The partnership between Self Pay Medical and BioDatAi will enable us to effectively capture and curate price data through the utilization of our Healthcare Intelligent Interoperability Platform and provide consumers with information they need to make educated medical purchasing decisions.”
Over the last five years, Self Pay Medical has been determined to put the power back in the hands of the consumer by providing easy access to medical pricing at the provider level. With a comprehensive system that has now captured over five million procedural price points, covering over 45,000 unique providers, consumers can now compare medical providers in their area by procedure and cost in order to assist in deciding where to receive the care that they need.
“Integrating our Healthcare Pricing Database and Portal into BioDatAi’s Intelligent Interoperability Platform will not only enhance our ability to service the immediate needs of Self Pay consumers across the U.S. but will also uniquely position our Partnership to help Hospitals comply with the Hospital Price Transparency Rule that took effect in January of 2021, in which only 14% of hospitals are in compliance with,” said Dr. Ken Steiner of Self Pay Medical.
