Cegedim Relationship Management, a technology information services company delivering innovation to help transform commercial and compliance operations in U.S. healthcare, today announced the company’s OneKey® database of healthcare providers and organizations now includes in-depth profiles of 430-plus Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and their complex network of providers including hospitals, group practices and medical offices, as well as physicians, mid-level prescribers and other healthcare business professionals making key decisions for their networks. By understanding the composition and reach of ACOs, the healthcare and life sciences industry will be better prepared to address the evolving landscape of healthcare delivery to support commercial strategies, resource planning, and multichannel customer engagement.
ACOs Cover Defined Patient Populations to Improve Outcomes
The ACO is the equivalent of a joint venture between healthcare providers and organizations and, in many cases, insurance companies. They have come together to give coordinated, high quality care to a defined patient population with the goal of creating efficiencies and reducing costs. Similar to integrated health systems, ACO decision making is more centralized and controlled.
“The new OneKey Accountable Care Organization database provides critical affiliations and links of healthcare provider organizations and professionals across local markets, and offers key insights that will lead to the development of new customer targeting and segmentation, more efficient resource allocation, and new customer engagement models,” said Dave Escalante, Senior Vice President of Cegedim’s OneKey and Marketing. “Like integrated health systems, healthcare manufacturers and suppliers of all types are leveraging this comprehensive data today to deliver new commercial value across their enterprises.”
Built through extensive telephone interviews and custom market research by Cegedim’s OneKey Research Centers in the United States, the new Accountable Care Organization database provides all the contacts and network connections necessary to define the market opportunity for companies of all types within the U.S. healthcare industry.
OneKey has identified over 430 ACOs with 1,900 C-level contacts and 2,142 other contacts including committee voting members, directors and administrators. Affiliated with the ACOs is a network of providers which include 67,137 physicians; 8,817 nurse practitioners and physician assistants; 24,670 hospital contacts; and 4,087 pharmacy contacts.
The complete ACO database is comprised of 19,468 healthcare organizations and 120,571 providers and professionals.
For targeting strategies or analytics, the OneKey Accountable Care Organization database can be customized and segmented by:
- ACO business type
- Workplace type, specialty, size and geography
- Channel data (email, postal, phone and fax) available for all contacts
- Job titles and functions
- Physician see, no-see policies
- Physician drug sampling preferences
- Adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management software usage
- NPI and state licensure data
Cegedim’s U.S. OneKey database includes 7 million validated profiles of healthcare professionals, including daily updates from hundreds of U.S. companies and weekly updates from official government sources like NPI, CMS, DEA and State Boards. Cegedim employs a uniquely designed telephone verification process – the largest of its kind in the U.S. – ensuring the highest levels of data quality and accuracy for its customers.
Only OneKey delivers superior market insights and cloud-based, accurate healthcare customer data.
