Our Story

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.

Onpoint opened its doors because policymakers were pounding on them. We were designed with a specific job in mind: to store, sort, and distribute healthcare data. But not just any data — trusted, dependable health data from sources across states and regions.

For more than 40 years, that's exactly what we've been doing — first as the Maine Health Information Center, now as Onpoint Health Data. While our name changed in 2009, our mission remains the same.  We help inform the decisions driving healthcare transformation by delivering independent, innovative, and reliable health data solutions to clients nationwide.
