Hey friends,
Exciting news:Our Knight Foundation prototype project has been a smashing success.We’re thrilled to report our successful project with KQED Public Radio in San Francisco and KPCC in Los Angeles had these results and more:1. At this, a great launch page from KQED, mirrored on KPCC, we got hundreds of shares and thousands of searches.2. Monday, Nov. 17, The Journal of the American Medical Association featured us, in an article by a California partner, the inimitable Lisa Aliferis of KQED, along with an amazing editorial by the JAMA editor — the editorial called us “bold” and a supplier of “essential information,” and called for more of the same (signup for free 1-month access required).NPR featured us, to add to the fun, Talking about the JAMA piece….

3. We  were cited as an unimpeachable source of neutral pricing information in a contract dispute between Stanford Health and Anthem Blue Cross. And got a bunch more great press, whoa, Politico, Nerdwallet, Yahoo Finance.

And! we have some other “clone” partnerships that we hope to announce soon. Please, friends, keep sending us your good thoughts.

Thank you for your support. Together, we can make a difference.

Cheers,

Jeanne and the ClearHealthCosts team
