  • New York Healthcare Online Shopping Tool (NY HOST)
    Funded by the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth), NY HOST is a 33-month, phased initiative to develop and disseminate a website that will help New York State consumers manage their deductibles and identify and compare providers in their respective areas based on price and quality indicators for frequently performed procedures. The goals of the initiative include:
    • Mobilizing statewide, multi‐stakeholder engagement to drive systemic change through healthcare price and quality transparency efforts in New York State;
    • Creating the state’s first free provider price and quality transparency website;
    • Offering consumers tools to assist in their management of high-deductible health plans;
    • Providing visibility into various “episodes of care” to help introduce consumers to changing reimbursement models that incorporate value-based payment methodologies; and
    • Promoting awareness, perceived value, sustained consumer use and satisfaction with the NY HOST website through extensive and robust statewide outreach and dissemination strategies.
