Game-changing HOP Teaming Dataset Released To Innovators

The HOP Teaming Dataset from CareSet offers the most detailed and up-to-date picture of the patient-sharing relationships found between all U.S. Medicare providers

The updated HOP Teaming dataset continues to provide some of the most timely and necessary insights into how healthcare ecosystems work across the US,” says J. Tod Fetherling, CEO of Perception Health. Perception Health uses the HOP Teaming dataset to help customers fully understand their markets and provide better care for the communities they serve.

The HOP Teaming Dataset is also one of the largest social graph datasets of any kind that is available with real person and business names included. Over the years, the data has become more reliable. Between 2015 and 2016, NPIs that were once hidden became visible. The data has stabilized since then, and by looking at the data one thing is for sure, the ecosystem is changing.

This is the fifth year CareSet has released the dataset. The commercial version is available for a nominal fee, and previous years are available at no cost.
