OutofPocket.com, a technology startup dedicated to promoting health care transparency and competition, announced the launch of its new search engine. The search engine enables consumers to look up prices and comparison shop for health care services by searching for price data across websites.
An earlier version of their website was launched in July 2007. It provided consumers with a platform to collaborate and expose the true prices of routine health care services.
OutofPoket.com has now added a new search engine, to enhance their website- collecting data on health care prices from multiple sources including: provider price lists, consumer contributed content, claims data from businesses, Government CMS Medicare data, websites that publish health care prices (hospitals, diagnostic testing facilities, clinics, labs, physician practices), and price transparency tools on public websites.
