In this release, we provided the 2016 Q2 data refresh to all v3 and v4 TargetWatch customers. As a quarterly refresh, every data set was updated. In addition to the Q2 refresh, there were several additional enhancements:
1. HME Market Intelligence Data: Four refreshed buckets (Compression Garments, HFCWO, Oxygen Therapy, Sleep Therapy)
2. Market Intelligence Data: One new bucket (Lifts Beds)
3. CMS: Star Ratings were added to the Home Health Agency tab
The addition of CMS Star Ratings to the TargetWatch Home Health agency tab provides users with an additional Star Ratings filter when building a target. This enhancement optimizes the results by comparing the user’s agency to competitors, potentially providing additional geographic market opportunities that may not have been previously identified using just the individual Quality of Patient Care and Patient Survey data.
For further information on Star Ratings, please review the attached document included with this posting.
