Current Physician Identified Inpatient and Outpatient Medicare Data Now Available from Intellimed

Current Physician Identified Medicare Inpatient and Outpatient Data Now Available from INTELLIMED

Quarterly updated Medicare outpatient and inpatient data with physician names is now available. Over 44 million new quarterly Medicare claims are available every quarter for immediate analysis.

PHOENIX, February 28, 2017 — Intellimed is pleased to announce the availability of current quarterly Medicare Inpatient and Outpatient data including attending and operating physicians associated with each case. The data is updated every quarter and is at most 90 days old.

“Medicare represents such a large portion of all claims activity”, said Bill Goodwin, CEO of Intellimed.  “With the addition of current Medicare data, we can give clients an excellent view into both inpatient and outpatient activity that is happening right now in their markets. And given the fact that most states do not have state or hospital association provided outpatient market data, this data gives them a great window into market behavior and competitive trends.”

Intellimed has over 170 million annual Medicare claims for inpatient and outpatient activity for each year since 2008, and each quarterly updated is approximately 44 million in new claims.

Intellimed has mapped the NPIs, the historical Medicare discharges to physician activities that can be tracked over time to see changes in practice patterns, outcomes and organizational allegiances. The mapping was completed for all patients from 2008 through 2016 and with detailed record level viewing. “This is a big step forward in helping healthcare organizations more effectively plan and favorably impact their respective markets,” commented Gene Koch, COO of Intellimed.

This dataset will be especially useful for organizations that operate in states with no or restricted access to physician data, and in states where the current provided data is rather old when they receive it. All Medicare data will continue to be severity adjusted by the MS-DRG and 3M APR-DRG groupers.

Intellimed TM Launches Customized National Specialized Databases for Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Thoracic Surgery and Oncology

Phoenix, AZ: Intellimed TM, the market leader in healthcare strategic planning support, is launching several proprietary national specialized databases to help healthcare provider organizations effectively execute decisions in the high profile segments of healthcare. For the first time there are databases that combine precise data from multiple sources including professional claims physician referral data, hospital inpatient discharge data, outpatient discharge data and emergency department data. Also included are physician identified CMS inpatient and outpatient discharge data, point of service detail, payor data and demographic data. “Strategic decisions by providers in many high profile segments involve large capital costs and significant risk” commented Bill Goodwin, CEO of Intellimed. “To make the most effective and cost efficient decisions, it is essential to have accurate, highly comprehensive databases that include all of the related factors that come from these multiple data sources. Relying on just one or two data sources is inadequate for successful strategic decision making, particularly in these critical growth segments. Not only are the costs and risks significant, but growing specialized revenues is essential to the future of most healthcare provider organizations.” These consolidated integrated local and national databases are the most comprehensive specialty databases available today and can be accessed through the Intelliclient™ strategic decision support platform. Available databases include Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Oncology, Urology and Pediatrics.
