Healthcare Providers (Legacy)

You use the Healthcare Providers template to master healthcare provider and practitioner data.


New Data Product Available

A new version of this data product is available, which provides an improved and streamlined configuration and publishing experience. See Healthcare Providers Data Product for more information about this new version.

Contact your account manager or Tamr Support ([email protected]) if you are interested in migrating an existing data product to the new version.

The data product produced by this template provides a consolidated view of Type 1 (individual) healthcare providers, and includes National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) enrichment - ensuring that you have the most complete and up-to-date information for each provider. You can use this information, for example, to help streamline operations and provide optimal patient care.

This template is not designed to master Type 2 (organization) healthcare data.

This data product template provides:

  • An industry-standard schema for healthcare provider data.
  • A machine learning model that deduplicates entities within, and across, your data sources.
  • Data quality services for address data.

Use Cases for this Template

Applying this template to your data helps you answer questions like:

  • For healthcare companies that bill Type 1 providers, is this provider in-network or out-of-network?
  • For hospitals that employee Type 1 providers, do you have a global view of your employee base? Which doctors practice in one of your locations and what are their specialities?
  • For organizations running clinical trials, are you recruiting providers with the appropriate specialities?
  • For organizations whose customers are Type 1 providers, are you reaching the right target audience and do you have accurate contact information?
