We have been working on a number of changes in the background, and this past week, we released our next iteration of the pricing tab. Previously, we had the procedure volume, the price, and the Medicare negotiated rate on all one chart. Now, we have separated those charts for improved clarity. In some cases, we also display ranges for prices and negotiated rates when the underlying data suggests a range (when viewing the data for a group of related, but distinct, procedures).
As with many of these decisions, there is a trade-off between information density and readability. The new visualization increases the number of charts on that tab, but hopefully, each chart is easier to read. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the visualization of the data, feel free to let us know.
