Consumers Union appreciatesĀ the opportunity to provide input on next steps on health care transparency. We are pleased to see interest and activity in this very important area and urge you to press forward in improving data collection, use, and public distribution, while also protecting consumer privacy and data security. The benefits of doing so are clear: engaged consumers actively participating in their health care with improved health outcomes, research data that benefits overall population health, and a more effective and efficient American health care system.
