Open Healthcare Data Advocacy
Our efforts led to the first national Provider Referral data release by the US government. The original “DocGraph Data” has helped researchers, journalists, and companies around the nation to provide data-backed healthcare solutions.
We continue to work with federal, state, private, non-profit, and public entities to create and open healthcare datasets. We believe the release of reliable and current data is vital to the improvement of the healthcare system.
