Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Save On Medical aims to revolutionize the health care industry by capitalizing on pricing transparency in a very price sensitive market, by providing resources to patients so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to their care. These resources include the Docometer scoring system, pricing transparency comparison structure and interactive educational materials, which now includes The Informed Patient Resource Sheet.
Intrinsically, the website application is designed to allow patients to shop for specific services and procedures in their area and compare pricing in conjunction with the level of quality care at various facilities. Once the patient determines the best fit for them, they are able to book and pay for the service all on the website. However, the concern of the industry is that while the trend of the “informed patient” is rising, often times patients end up being affected by the wrong external decision makers and do not have the real facts, which is why Save On has provided a helpful patient information sheet, to learn about the procedures they are shopping for.
Aside from providing affordable health care, Save On Medical also aims to serve as a beneficial resource for both patients and providers. The SaveOn Docometer is one way in which the website educates patients. Providers’ Docometer score is an aggregation of many details related to their quality of service, pricing structures and convenience. Patients can differentiate between a provider that has a large board certified physician base and quicker turn-around time that might cost more than a facility that is still a good option, but might not be as close to the patient. The difference between Save On Medical and other daily deal options for saving on healthcare, are the options and comparison pricing structures provided to patients.
