Compare Hospital Charges

Very interesting data at this site.  Why the price for the same procedure varies by factors over 100% is amazing.  The ultimate goal of the Era of Big Data - - getting old, inefficient and closed systems (such as our medical industry) to become more transparent, market driven, and open.  One would hope that more useful information in the hands of consumers produces an environment of better market-based decision making.
