Re: Trust a bigger obstacle than technology
Some patients are a little leery, too. I think it's because 'value' is difficult to measure or quantify. While it's pretty easy to understand the correlation between $100 fee for an office visit, it's less simple to ascribe a value to a treatment. If a treatment/surgery has only a 15% chance of success and a 68% chance of long-term pain, is the value too small for a payer to authorize payment? What voice does a patient have? Transparency, as well as trust, is vital here.
