The healthcare providers mastering template includes these data quality and enrichment services:
- Address Standardization, Validation, and Geocoding. This service examines values for the template's address attributes, and adds any resulting validated, standardized values to each record in new enrichment-specific attributes. The original values mapped from your source datasets remain present and unchanged.
- NPPES Enrichment. This service matches each mastered healthcare provider to a National Provider Identifier (NPI), and adds detailed practice, credential, specialty, name, and other information from the National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES).
