Unprecedented Data-Driven Performance Transparency in Healthcare, starting with Nursing Homes

I am proud to announce that, as part of OnlyBoth’s strong focus on healthcare during 2018, we just launched a web-based Nursing Homes benchmarking engine that deeply leverages the latest, rich data on 15,646 nursing homes published in January 2018 by Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare.  The press release is here, and the new, “front door” to the engine is at benchmine.com, shown here:benchmineOne of our goals is to bring the ultimate performance transparency to healthcare sectors, leveraging initially the tremendous work done by Medicare’s contractors, nursing-home inspectors, and nursing homes themselves to contribute data for public access.

To further this goal, we have chosen to make the service simple, quick, and especially affordable. To evaluate a single home, users pay $9 one-time with a credit card or Paypal. To evaluate any one of the 15,646 nursing homes, pay $39. To perform queries that go across all nursing homes, pay $99. These payments give access to one quarterly edition of the engine. We expect to create new editions every quarter, using the latest published data. Read here about the features available at different price points, which support various roles within the nursing home industry.

Finally, I’ll emphasize that the benchmarking engine, which discovers comparative insights worth knowing and writes them up in perfect English, without injecting biased opinion anywhere, generates more words in its nursing-home application – around 80 million – within insightful sentences than are contained in the entire Oxford English Dictionary or the Encyclopedia Britannica.

But don’t let that volume scare you. Just as Google’s search engine stores nearly all the world’s web content, but brings you a manageable number of results, worth knowing, that are relevant to your query, so does a benchmarking engine!
