How to use Maine NPR for your healthcare commercialization strategy

For anyone looking to sell into Maine’s healthcare industry, understanding the landscape is vital for formulating strategic decisions. Whether you are launching a new product or service or expanding into a new market, knowing which Maine hospitals have the highest NPR can help you size the market, align sales territories, or make strategic investment decisions.

NPR can also provide key insights into Maine’s IDNs. For example, the top hospital in Maine is a part of the Northern Light Health IDN, yet the MaineHealth IDN has a higher NPR—$2.9 billion compared to $2.1 billion—because it has more hospitals and many of its hospitals outperform those in the Northern Light Health IDN. Since an IDN is a simple way to connect with multiple hospitals, this information can help guide your commercialization strategy.
