What is Data Processing?

“Data processing” refers to the collection, aggregation, cleaning, and updating of data so hospitals and health systems can use it to make informed strategic decisions.

Why is a strong data process needed?

The healthcare space is flooded with various types of data: state data sets, Medicare data sets, all-claims data, hospital patient data, demographic, psychographic, and more.

Because of all this available data, every hospital and health system could benefit from a strong data process. This practice is particularly crucial for hospitals systems juggling multi-state data or using SPSS or SQL to aggregate data.

Our Philosophy

Today, hospital resources are getting caught in the weeds, spending the majority of their time in the data. This leaves less and less time for the higher, more strategic levels of thinking. By taking this arduous and time-consuming task off the plate of our partners, prior to even loading the data into our software platform, we provide opportunity for focus on the more important job of making informed growth decisions.
