Truven Health Planning Solutions

Supporting your strategic business decisions


Our outpatient analysis is powered by one of the largest datasets in the industry, providing local utilization volumes for more than 600 categories of outpatient services.

As hospitals and health systems transition from fee-for-service to value-based-care models, our planning solutions, State Data-Scape and Market Expert, can help you develop new strategies for growth, patient service and cost reduction—and avoid unforeseen problems down the road.

The foundation of our comprehensive healthcare strategic planning solutions is detailed hospital market research, plus access to widely-cited data and the current localized forecasts—not national averages.

Planning solutions from Truven Health Analytics™, an IBM® Company, can help you:

  • Track your healthcare organization’s market position and competitive trends
  • Analyze forecasted growth
  • Assess the current medical resource landscape and anticipate future physician need
  • See changes in market dynamics and growth patterns with state-of-the-art visual insights
  • Develop your strategic plan with confidence

A focus on outpatient demand

As the numbers of newly insured patients grow, the importance of your outpatient revenue stream is likely growing, too. And we believe you need to be able to identify your hospital’s outpatient market share based on a solid understanding of the local market, competition and opportunity. That’s why we also offer Outpatient Planning tools—providing locally specific analytics and insights into your market’s outpatient activity.

Recognizing that outpatient utilization may vary by age, gender, payer, site of care and market, the depth and breadth of data in the Outpatient Planning tools can help you assess procedure utilization, identify service gaps, monitor competitive activity and capitalize on existing and potential outpatient opportunities.
