Hospital leaders should consider the tremendous demand in the market for increased honesty in health care. That includes being up-front about prices and making themselves available to discuss bills.

Dr. Keith Smith of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma and other leaders of the free market medical movement have demonstrated how transforming a medical center to one that embraces transparency is not only feasible, but profitable.
