Health Care Data: How to Assess whether Your TPA and Vendor Partners will Play Nice in the Sandbox

Over the past year, CPR has researched the barriers purchasers and their business associates encounter when they request data from a health plan or other vendor.  We gathered information from a diverse group of stakeholders – employer-purchasers, vendors, consultants, and even health plans to inform a 360° view of data stewardship between purchasers and their business associates.  This research culminated in the creation of a new suite of tools that purchasers can use to assess their TPA’s and other vendors’ willingness to “play nice” in the data sandbox.  In January, we published these tools – Purchaser Tools for Breaking Barriers to Data Ownership, Access, & Use and hosted a virtual event – Data is the New Health Care Currency. Are Purchasers Getting Short-Changed.
