The Importance of Accurate Provider Data

It's not enough for healthcare organizations to simply store provider data; it must be accurate and complete. Sound practices around provider data quality is part of operational management. Part of this management includes provider directories that are an invaluable resource to your network.

Inaccurate provider data can lead to poor patient access, government sanctions, reduction in profits, and inefficient business operations. This can also lead to gaps in care due to untimely communications between patient and physician. 

Accurate and complete provider data can offer organizations the opportunity for increased revenue growth, improved workflows and better patient outcomes.

An analysis of the healthcare industry has revealed:

Lack of Communication

An estimated 40 percent of healthcare provider records have missing or outdated information that results in inefficient patient and physician communication.

Unreliable Contact Info

Around 2.4 percent of provider demographics change on at least a monthly basis.

Changing Relationships

Approximately one-third of doctors change affiliations each year. As a result, businesses holding poor data increase their recruitment costs with wasted human resource time, poor targeting, and lack of background information, to name a few.


Bad data can have a devastating impact on a business' turnovers and can result in anywhere between 10 and 30 percent of lost revenue.

How Cleansing and Augmenting Provider Data Helps Healthcare Organizations

Cleansing and proactively maintaining accurate provider information can introduce a range of operational efficiencies which have the potential to translate into substantial revenue each year.

Updated and accurate data improves compliance with CMS and other regulations pertaining to provider data quality. Augmented and cleansed provider data lowers the compliance risks of inaccurate data and wasteful campaigns, field calls and other targeting that can negatively impact your revenue.

Lastly, accurate provider data improves communication, creates operational efficiencies and enhances care coordination to improve the patient experience and overall care.
