Healthcare Transparency and the Supreme Court
"The case's significance thus extends well beyond states' authority to regulate group health insurance. In the final estimation, improving population health depends on collective, local efforts to help people stay healthy and get high-value, patient-centered care. Allowing large firms to exempt themselves will undermine those collective efforts at a time when they are sorely needed. Given the political dysfunction in Washington, now would be an especially inauspicious moment to sideline the states."
—Prof. Nicholas Bagley, in a New England Journal of Medicine article about the upcoming Supreme Court case, Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual, which will decide who controls healthcare data.
