Consumerism has been percolating into the healthcare industry for a long time now, with patients increasingly being offered numerous choices in their healthcare options, trying to make the best decisions for quality and cost just as they do with any other consumable. This trend has been expedited several regulations and acts undertaken by administrative authorities, leaving patients with substantial deductibles that puts more stress on them, compelling them to find the most cost-effective healthcare options for the money coming out of their own pockets.

Until recent times, patients who needed information about a hospital or specialized doctor, were able to find only basic data. This left them to base their hospital treatment decisions on factors such as their insurance coverage and the availability of the care they required. However, patient are now able to access much more data such as the physician's experience with a particular procedure or a hospital's complication and readmission rates.
Patients are finding, however, that there are limits to how much they can play the savvy consumer. Despite growing access to quality metrics and hospital rankings, there still are holes in that data that can make it difficult to discern meaningful differences among providers; and even if patients have adequate information, they may be unable to choose freely because of health plan restrictions and other limitations.
However, the trend toward consumerism has advanced far beyond where it was just a few years ago, and the healthcare industry is responding with outreach and initiatives intended to help patients in their quest for value.
