Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) recently released a Spanish version of the Shop for Care tool based on price information in the Colorado All Payer Claims Database (CO APCD). The release is an effort to help more Coloradans in need shop for health care services across hospitals and facilities in the state, and help them save thousands of dollars on non-emergent services.
Only a handful of states across the U.S. offer a shopping tool similar to the one in Colorado, and creating a Spanish version was recently identified as an important goal by CIVHC’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team. In addition to a Spanish version, CIVHC made the tool more mobile friendly, increasing accessibility on multiple devices.
