Chief Medical Officer, St. Joseph Hospital of Orange (California)
The story of Onpoint Health Data is simple: We were built to meet a critical need.
Rewind to the mid-1970s, a period of sprawling hospitals, spiraling costs, and growing questions. In Maine, lawmakers and healthcare providers alike were struggling to interpret data about the volume, quality, and cost of healthcare services delivered across the state.
They had data — plenty of it — but all from multiple sources in many formats. Fragmented, duplicated, copious, and incomplete, it was as much headache as help. What they needed was simple yet revolutionary: a systematic way to collect, integrate, and distribute reliable data so sound decisions could be made.
That's where we came in.
