Are there strategic market opportunities for physicians in your service area? Do you have current gaps in your physician base? What are your institutional succession planning needs? How many and what type of providers do you need to succeed? What is the impact of population health on demand for physicians? Do you have a demonstrated community need for compliance purposes? 3d Health clients return to us time and again to help their organizations determine demand for physicians and develop the resulting provider and recruitment strategy. Our approach provides a real-world assessment that helps you recruit and retain the right mix of physicians for your hospital or health system. We combine physician perspective, senior management insight, real-time market intelligence, best-of-industry data, a proprietary demand model, and our national experience to create a strategic plan. 3d Health projects demand for physician services using our proprietary Physician Demand Model. The model was developed with utilization data purchased from the leading actuarial firm Milliman. Milliman’s databases are comprised of national claims data representing 481 million member months collected from insurance companies, HMOs, employer groups, state governments, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. 3d Health’s baseline model projects demand for physician services for a traditionally managed patient population and includes utilization data that is age and gender specific across 45 physician specialties and 25 pediatric sub-specialties. The model is also capable of adjusting the projected demand for physician services across the continuum from loosely to well-managed care, allowing you to better plan for population health management and the expected impact on demand for physician services. 3d Health compiles, tests, and iterates our provider supply databases using a variety of sources, including your provider rosters, competitor hospital rosters, mailing list data, CMS data, the AMA Masterfile, physician practice websites, Yelp, Healthgrades, Vitals, and other online resources. In addition, 3d Health verifies records with primary research and typically makes outbound telephone calls to 75-90% of the physicians within the database.
