As deductibles rise, patient demand for cost transparency prior to service is skyrocketing. To meet these needs, NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXGN), the leading provider of ambulatory-only technology solutions, and Availity, the nation’s largest real-time health information network, have collaborated to offer clients NextGen® Pre-Service Solutions.

In practice, consumers have been slow to shop for health care based on price, despite high enrollment levels in HDHPs, with the National Center for Health Statistics reporting that nearly 40 percent of consumers purchased private HDHPs in 2016, up from 26 percent in 2011.
