In this episode, we’re back to one of our favorite subjects – price transparency. We’re speaking with Torben Nielsen, the Senior Vice President of product, strategy and analytics at HealthSparq.

HealthSparq partners with health plans to provide their members tools to help them shop for healthcare. HealthSparq tools provide users with total out-of-pocket costs, quality information and more to help people make smart choices in healthcare. Torben is a veteran of Lego – believe it or not – so he is going to help us understand how consumers are “putting the pieces together” when it comes to transparency.

In this episode, Torben tells us how health plans are utilizing transparency tools like HealthSparq, what kind of savings health plans are seeing from their members who use transparency tools and the challenges around consumer adoption of transparency tools. And, in our Talk Back segment, consumers talk about the role price plays for them today as they make healthcare decisions.
