Downloadable Database of Managed Care Organizations Available
Manasquan, N.J. -- A downloadable database containing information on more than 4,200
managed healthcare plans including HMOs, PPOs, and POS plans, has been produced on
diskette by the Managed Care Information Center.
# # #
The electronic version of The National Directory of Managed Care Organizations,
2nd edition, includes profiles on specialty HMOs and PPOs, utilization review organizations,
and third party administrators. The new database also includes listings of pharmacy benefit
management companies (PBMs); pharmacy networks; and provider sponsored organizations
(PSOs) currently in operation under the Medicare+Choice demonstration program.
The electronic National Directory of Managed Care Organizations can easily be
downloaded into a spreadsheet, database program or sales automation software program.
The database is provided in ASCII text and it is easy to manipulate the data for company or
market specific research or study.
Users can study managed care activity within a state or region of the country for
market analysis purposes.
The information contained in the database has been collected from sources that
include telephone interviews of managed care organization representatives and mail and fax
surveys by members of the Managed Care Information Center research project staff. All
address and contact information has been verified.
The database can be used to generate reports, track managed care organization trends,
study markets and plan for new product development.
The database includes 141 fields of information. Data elements include organization
name, address, telephone, fax, key executive contacts, parent company, model type, plan
type, number of primary & specialist physicians, and service areas. The database also
includes organizational composition, statistics, tax status, type of accreditation, revenues, and
medical loss and administrative expense ratios.
The National Directory of Managed Care Organizations' electronic database is
continuously updated as data is obtained by the research staff. Users receive the freshest data
when the diskette is delivered.
"This information is simply not this readily available from any other source, not from
a healthcare trade association, not even from the U.S. Government," said Gwen Lareau, who
heads the directory research project.
The National Directory of Managed Care Organizations standard market contact
database module price is $1,495. However, to introduce the database to the market, it is
currently available for $1,195.
