Hamilton, NJ, August 20, 2020 — P&R Dental Strategies, LLC, delivering customized, actionable business intelligence to support a variety of dental payer objectives, today announced that it has implemented a “COVID-19 Active Indicator” flag and last date of service stamp into every dental provider listing in P&R’s industry-leading Network Development Module (NDM). NDM is an in-browser dental provider search engine. It empowers payer recruitment and provider relations teams with accurate location listings that draw on P&R’s multi-payer database containing data on over 200,000 active U.S. dentists and billions of dental claim records.
For years, clients have used the accurate provider location information and deep insights into dentist practice behavior found in NDM to assess dentist movement and better understand group practice affiliations. As restrictions on dental procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted, practice re-openings have been inconsistent, and provider movement has become more unpredictable. Powered by the most comprehensive dental claims database, DentaBase®, NDM can show users which providers have been actively performing dental procedures on patients since April 1st, 2020, along with a date stamp to indicate the last date of service found in DentaBase.
These features, available to all new and current NDM subscribers at no additional charge, enable dental payers to better reach dentists as the industry reopens as well as resume their network management, recruiting and provider contracting operations with confidence.
Michael Urbach, President of P&R Dental Strategies, said “Now more than ever, understanding the status of a dental practice and having a reliable source for data on provider movement is critical. The financial impact of the pandemic has made dentist movement, practice consolidation, closures and retirements more common. By turning to the comprehensive provider location data and insights on practicing behavior accessed with NDM, dental payers can get back to business with confidence.”
