Healthcare is costly for patients and payors, yet higher prices may not correlate with better care. This study evaluated the incidence of Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) after pancreatectomies in hospitals with higher and lower markup ratios (proportion between charges and costs billed by a hospital for a determined service). Hospitals with a higher markup ratio had a higher incidence of PSI, and a higher markup ratio was not associated with higher quality.
