About Healthcare Bluebook
Healthcare Bluebook was founded in 2007 by Jeffrey Rice, M.D. with a simple purpose: to expose the truth about in-network price and quality variation and empower consumers to make more informed decisions about their healthcare. Since then, Bluebook has become the market leader and one of the largest independent providers of intuitive, effective price and quality transparency and member reward solutions to third-party administrators, employee benefit trusts, state and municipal governments and large self-insured employers.
Our public sector clients include the state employee health plans for Florida, Nevada and Montana, as well as more than 90 other municipalities, school districts and public trusts. Our commercial clients reside in all 50 states and range in size from as few as ten employees to complex, geographically dispersed Fortune 100 companies with multiple operating divisions and carriers.
With employers expected to spend 0 billion in 2019 on employee health benefits, companies urgently seek ways to cut costs. Healthcare Bluebook’s digital transparency solution exposes the enormous quality and cost variances between medical providers, enabling brokers, consultants and TPAs to help employers save as much as 50% on shoppable services by using high-quality, lower-cost in-network providers.
Unlike free insurance carrier tools, which only compare in-network pricing and do not include quality data, Bluebook’s cost and quality information is calculated from raw discharge claims in the CMS Standard Analytics file (not self-reported).
Quality metrics are risk- and volume- adjusted using the same methodology and source data to map physicians to hospitals where they perform, allowing apples-to-apples assessments on patient outcomes for both the facility and doctor. Using a simple color-coded guide, employees can easily find high-quality affordable providers in their geographic area.
Employers who implement Bluebook’s Engagement Best Practices can achieve an ROI as high as 6:1. Our robust Engagement Toolkit provides access to a vast selection of pre-designed materials that educate, remind and reinforce use of the tool.
Bluebook easily integrates with existing carrier tools and has served 5,000+ companies nationwide with 100% on-time implementations and 92% client retention.

Public vs. Private: How Shortlister Gets Paid
|Shortlister Public Site
|Who can Access Shortlister?||Versions of the Shortlister app are available for employers and benefits consultants to access detailed information on service providers and issue RFPs.||Anyone can access the basic vendor data listed on the Shortlister public site, free of charge.|
|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|
|Do service providers pay to be listed?||No – Service providers can enroll on the Shortlister app for free.||No – Service Providers do not pay to be listed on the Shortlister public site.|
|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|
|Who provides reviews of service providers?||Reviews on Shortlister's app are collected from employers and consultants. Service providers are also able to collect reviews from their customers, once they are validated by Shortlister. When a user is logged into the Shortlister app, they can clearly see the source of the review.||Public site reviews are an aggregation of employer, consultant and provider-collected reviews. There is no way for public site visitors to differentiate the source of the review.|
|Do service providers see information and reviews put in the site by your users?||Service providers cannot see the information put in by Shortlister's consultant and employer users.||Service providers can see information that was collected from their own clients.|
