CIVHC Launches Database for Comparing Common Surgery Prices

The Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) recently launched the All Payer Claims Database, a tool to compare how costs vary at different hospitals for the same medical procedures. The database includes common surgeries, like hip replacements or Cesarean-section births, and compares the cost at hospitals across the state. According to Denver Business Journal, some surgeries can vary by 200% at different hospitals in Colorado.

If you’d like to see how costs compare, the database is available at comedprice.org.
