Data analytics & benchmarking
Quantitative, actionable insights are crucial to manage trends affecting providers in the numbers-driven healthcare industry. With real-time data and actionable reports from SHP you can improve your quality, Star Ratings, and patient satisfaction by tracking daily performance and smartly focusing on areas requiring change. The trends affecting providers today include higher expectations of quality, the movement toward value-based purchasing, and shrinking reimbursements.
