Data Cleanse & Enrichment

Healthcare Provider Database Cleansing & Enrichment

Data cleansing is the process of amending or removing incomplete, inaccurate or duplicate data from a database. Data cleansing helps organizations save time and minimize expenses spent on correcting data errors manually, and leads to more efficient customer relationship management.

The Impact of Bad Data

Historically, we see physician information change to the tune of approx. 15-20% per year. For this reason, its critical to have a data partner that can help you keep your provider database accurate & up-to-date. This can be a difficult task for an organization to manage and certainly one that is more cost effective to outsource. Physicians are constantly on the move, often practicing from multiple locations and moving among different group sites and hospitals. On average, the customer databases we process contain inaccuracies within about 40% of the records we analyze. The cost implications on both sales force and marketing budgets is often astounding with some studies suggesting that “bad data” can have up to a 30% impact on overall revenue.
