How to Readily Identify Opportunities for Growth and Expansion
The dynamics of physician relations are perpetually changing. For now, there’s a seeming shift in priorities as a generation of physicians are placing greater emphasis on work-life balance and less drawn to managing their own practice. Additionally, as more Boomers reach retirement age, many are seeking options to transition out of full-time practice. Physician liaisons need insight and support as they work to navigate these discussions, track patterns to inform their conversations, and build mutually beneficial relationships. In this post, we’ll discuss in more detail trends in physician recruiting and relations, and how physician liaisons and those in business development can be better equipped to keep pace with the changes.
Reconsidering the Value this Data Set Provides
Most states have access to their own state data, though the value of this data is often overshadowed by other data sets. In this blog, we’ll look at the top three things you need to know about your state data - and why you should reconsider the value it provides.

How Stratasan’s ZIP5 Patient Origin Modeling Can Help You Identify Trends and Opportunities
Stratasan recently began offering a new capability: ZIP5 analysis of our All-Payer Claims Database. This capability helps health systems and hospitals better assess critical business performance in areas such as patient outmigration and physician referral tracking.
Stratasan assigns a ZIP5 to patient IDs in order to provide an enhanced level of granularity. The ZIP5 assignment is for All-Payer Claims 837 submit data since that is the data being rolled up to the ZIP. This modeling is based on the patient’s observed healthcare utilization from All-Payer Claims Data (APCD). In this blog, we’ll explore our methodology for ZIP5 modeling, but first, let’s explain why this level of insight is useful.
Advice from the Experts on How to Successfully Complete Your CHNA
2022 will be a big year for Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs). With the requirement that they are conducted every three years, this is the year for many hospitals to undergo a systematic collection, analysis, and dissemination of information about the health of their community.
With this in mind, we recently gathered some of the brightest minds we know - all experts on how to successfully conduct a CHNA: Dr. Stephanie Bailey, Amanda Ables and Carol Quest. Each of these industry healthcare leaders have been there, struggled with and come out the other side of at least one CHNA. (You can read full bios for each of our panelists at the end of this post. We also recorded the session, and you can listen to it here.)
And How the Right Tools Can Help You Know Where to Grow
Our entire Stratasan team knows the importance of deeply understanding the needs and desires of the healthcare strategists, marketers, physician liaisons and other decision-makers we serve. We're constantly working to identify our customers' motivations, challenges and struggles, so we can more effectively support them and better tailor our products and services to capably address their top priorities.
It was with this in mind that we recently brought in outside experts to help bridge knowledge gaps and amplify internal understanding of the always complex, always changing acute care, ancillary and payer spaces. This amazing team - highly skilled at conducting in-depth qualitative research and utilizing simple frameworks to capture a central message - served us well, both confirming what we already knew and uncovering many interesting new insights. In this post, we’ll share some common themes from our research, and how we’re pivoting our outreach to more closely align with the ways we provide value.

Combat the Trends and Get Patients the Care they Need
Research shows that regular check-ins with a primary care provider can lead to the early detection of major healthcare concerns. It can also keep chronic problems like diabetes, asthma, and congestive heart failure from turning into emergencies and costly hospital stays. And yet, nearly half of all Americans say they or someone they live with has delayed care since the onslaught of coronavirus, according to a survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
While fears of COVID continue to be, not surprisingly, a major factor keeping patients from visiting their doctor, there are other concerns to be considered as well. A Zocdoc survey shows that Americans across the board—especially Millennials—are dropping out of healthcare. These stats may surprise you:
