Expert Analysis of Large, Complex Healthcare Databases | Onpoint Health Data

Analytic Services

Onpoint’s Analytic Services division has been working with healthcare data to deliver innovative solutions for more than 35 years. It’s a legacy that began with our ground-breaking work in the 1970s and 1980s on regional variation in care and cost and continues today with our use of all-payer claims databases to understand trends, inform policy, project impact, and evaluate program effectiveness. From cross-state cost tiering to multi-state variation studies, snapshot analyses to dynamic drill-down reporting, Onpoint’s niche is actionable analytics.

We have unique expertise in the development of robust master patient and provider indices using de-identified data across health plans and across data streams. We are expert in linking and integrating administrative and clinical data alike, including hospital discharge data, public health registries, and clinical warehouses. We are among the first to have mapped -- and integrated -- the newly available, un-adjudicated claim formats in support of the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Multi-payer Advanced Primary Care Practice (MAPCP) pilots. We’re also expert in the use of third-party tools -- effective care measures, clinical classifications, risk adjusters, groupers -- critical to downstream studies.
