Bringing everything together
Our approach provides a comprehensive, detailed view into the affiliations that make up larger networks and systems and shows how individual entities are connected and interact. Our team assimilates, normalizes and categorizes large amounts of unstructured data to make sure all entities are represented and connected. The Definitive ID provides a real-time view into evolving markets by tracking mergers and acquisitions, referral networks, provider affiliations, hospital closures, name changes and any other changes. In a healthcare landscape that’s always in flux, the Definitive ID is a reliable constant.
Seeing the whole market
The Definitive ID powers the Definitive Healthcare platform for a comprehensive, longitudinal view of the complex and fragmented healthcare ecosystem, helping businesses navigate the market and make smarter decisions.
Pushing what's possible
Our methodology powers our proprietary technology by combining manual research and data science with an innovative technology stack, resulting in consistent quality and accurate intelligence. Our team cleans and normalizes all data with methods such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) to extract relevant information from multiple sources. Then, identifiers from different data sets are linked by techniques like geolocation, powering the Definitive ID. This allows us to uncover crucial insights that can’t be discovered by manual research alone, like relationships between individuals and organizations, or robust feature engineering for Machine Learning models.
Uncovering more value from data
Our research team uses many different techniques to comb through every source and supplement it with data, including medical and pharmacy claims, to increase the breadth of available information and ensure research accuracy. We manually check data and run it through AI and ML algorithms for cleaning, linking and analyzing, and use Databricks technology with the Microsoft Azure cloud to identify the best production models and implement them through the Model Registry. Each new data source and algorithm boosts the Definitive Healthcare platform, creating more value for our users. Our comprehensive intelligence is made up of thousands of data sources and billions of data points gathered from:
