High Quality, Low Cost HealthCare Video Interview Series: Martha Bebinger and HealthCareSavvy
Last week we listened to James Spearman talk about Medical Tourism in the US. This week, we visit with Martha Bebinger, a reporter from Boston's NPR news station, WBUR. Martha reports on healthcare news for WBUR and is also the creator of HealthCareSavvy, WBUR's online community where patients learn to shop for healthcare. HealthCareSavvy offers resources to help people learn how to shop for providers, insurance and medical procedures. It also includes a blog where patients can "tell their story" about their experience in shopping for healthcare. See Martha's post on "Good" colonoscopies here. And please visit the site - it's a wealth of information!
And now, watch the video!
