Federal official urges North Texans to join network on health pricing, quality data
Tevi Troy, PhD, deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has encouraged North Texas insurers and employers to join a national network designed to make healthcare pricing and quality information more readily available to consumers. Troy came to Dallas to encourage the formation of a Chartered Value Exchange, a local collaboration among employers, patients and the health industry. Fourteen communities across the U.S. have joined a network of the exchanges, part of the Bush administration's effort to create a value-driven healthcare system.
