When I need consistency in a report I make a sample of what I want the deliverable to look like.

Maybe even require they define the materials labor and overhead aspect of a charge. That way if something is cheap and takes a short time and it's padded with "overhead" people can correctly ask the hospital why.

This issue is related to why employers don't like pay transparency. If everyone knew the actual prices of things, well it might be inconvenient for the rich people at the top strip mining everyone for medical expenses and labor hours.

I once publicly asked a local Republican stooge what the GOP had actually done "for the American People" in the last 40 years and this price list thing was the only thing he could come up with.

Yeah, that's much better than that commie idea of a national single-payer healthcare system. Could you imagine how awful that would be for the average person?
