You must take rows upon rows of data and transform it into an easily digestible format—a skill that when executed properly, is extremely valuable.

Why You Need Both for Growth Planning and Physician Relations
By Haley Attridge, Tony Camarata, Rebecca Groner, Lee Ann Lambdin, and Dave Sellers
Every hospital and healthcare system looking to grow could benefit from reliable, clean, and standardized healthcare patient data. It’s critical for strategic planners and physician liaisons, in particular, to have access to data they can trust when looking to expand offerings, build physician relationships, and improve accessibility to care for their service area.
We recently compared state and CMS datasets and discussed how to sort through the complexities of both to extract valuable insights. If you missed that post, we encourage you to check it out, here.
In this post, we’re analyzing state and all-payer claims data. We’ll explore how these datasets differ, why they differ, and how, when armed with insights from both datasets, planners and liaisons can gain a more complete picture of the opportunities within their market.
