Hot Off The Press

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.
