PDE investigative reports started with health care professionals and have expanded to include expert witnesses of every type, hospitals, medical devices, and nursing homes.
Our investigators took the same investigative skill, curiosity and thoroughness we put into our Provider Profile Reports and applied it to engineers, scientists, professors and scholars. Then we started researching health facilities, medical devices and have recently added Nursing Home Provider Profile Reports.
We look under every stone, and turn over every leaf in the forest of public information. The things we find even surprise us sometimes, and we think we have seen everything.
For over a decade, our experts have researched and supplied provider data to health plans, large health systems, medical malpractice insurers, and fraud, waste and abuse (FWA) investigators.
We started by looking at the enormous amount of provider data sources that were out there and evaluating their accuracy. This led us to the understanding that while there is an avalanche of general provider data available, the accuracy of that data is questionable. Many provider data sites are not updated for years and some of the data they provide is frankly, just incorrect.
Knowing this, we researched and identified the actual true sources for provider information. Then we evaluated the strength and weaknesses of even these sources, looking for ways to perfect the data as we went along.
Some of this research went as far as speaking with every medical disciplinary agency in the United States to understand their processes, limitations and timelines for reporting adverse provider data.
Working with state and federal officials provided us with a real understanding of the challenges in updating, managing, coordinating and providing accurate provider data.
But machines don't ask what's missing and algorithms don't understand short handed medical boards and misfiled court records. It takes more than these to get the data right and to get all of it.
We have spent years identifying sources of accurate provider information and this experience allows us to quickly and effectively locate, compare and provide needed information from hundreds of sources.
Our organic, hands on approach and attention to accuracy has made us a trusted source of provider information. Our ability to know when something is missing and our drive to find it, is what sets us apart.
