The global healthcare provider network management market is bifurcated into provider network management services and provider network management platform/software segments. The provider network management services segment is further categorized into outsourcing services and internal services.
A provider network consists of a set of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers such as nurse practitioners, therapists, and other clinicians that are a part of the health insurance plan. Provider network management includes database management, credentialing, contracting services, pricing maintenance, and configuration, among others. With the help of provider network management, the payer organization is able to uncover insights which may have been overlooked previously by conventional analytical tools. Provider network management helps in leveraging data obtained in daily operations by payer organizations to identify high-risk providers, create consistency in care delivery, and ensure necessary health insurance coverage for patients.
