What are the True Costs of Providing Health Care?

Terie McClintock, Director at Perficient, recently wrote a blog post about the challenge caregivers face in understanding the total costs involved throughout the entire path that a patient travels.

This is a well-known challenge for implementing clinical effectiveness improvements whether it comes to improving care or lowering cost.
