Get a complete view of provider performance

Provider Sphere comprehensively tracks financial, utilization, and quality metrics to deliver robust analytic insights about healthcare providers.

Analyze multiple data sources in a single analytics engine


As healthcare networks and reimbursement structures continue to evolve, and pertinent data is scattered across companies, it’s become more difficult for payment organizations to identify strong performance among healthcare providers. When data is stored in different places across an organization and different departments use their own methods of data reporting, there can be no single source of truth when looking at provider information. Even when you use ETL methods to explore and examine the data, the process can be time-consuming and result in sub-par analysis that doesn’t deliver a full and detailed picture of provider performance. Provider Sphere was created to aggregate and leverage provider data from multiple sources to offer a single version of analytic insights for the user – which can then be used to frame conversations with providers as networks and reimbursements shift and change.
