Client Case Study: Yale New Haven Health brings a consumer-focused price transparency strategy to reality

Published: June 8, 2017 by Experian Health

Yale New Haven Health (YNHH) established a goal to elevate the patient financial experience by compassionately educating patients about the finances surrounding their care, and educating staff on the tools and methods for delivering that message. YNHH embarked on a two-year patient financial advisory initiative, including patient and family advisors, to hear opinions and learn valuable information directly from consumers.

According to Sharlene Seidman, Executive Director Corporate Business Services, with Yale New Haven Health:

“We needed a consumer-focused price transparency strategy that would bring us on par with other industries, like retail. Our goal was that when patients discuss their overall YNHH experience, it is not just reflective of their clinical care, but their financial care as well.”

Since going live with Eligibility and the Epic integration in May 2016, YNHH has made major strides toward meeting its pre-service excellence goals in four key areas 1) the right technology, 2) best practices, 3) patient interaction/engagement, and 4) employee culture and education.
