Hilltop’s newly funded National Science Foundation (NSF) project on hospital pricing behavior is featured in a new article by State of Reform, an organization focused on conversations that bridge the gap between health care and the policy that governs it. Hilltop researchers Morgan Henderson, PhD, and Morgane Mouslim, DVM, ScM, will collect, clean, document, and synthesize a sample of pricing data posted by hospitals in response to a 2021 federal rule mandating that hospitals disclose previously confidential data on the prices they charge. The resulting data set and documentation will be made available to other researchers. Drs. Henderson and Mouslim will also conduct two studies on the relationship between payer mix and hospital pricing behavior.
