Today, we are excited to officially launch our new rate search tool, Signal, to all interested in accessing nationwide price transparency machine readable file data at a row-level in real-time. 

Signal represents an industry-first for price transparency. Instead of having to deal with fixed datasets that need maintenance, go stale, and limit what you can search, our team embarked on a massive technical undertaking involving optimizing data architecture, building a high performance API, and creating a flexible user experience that takes into account how anyone across healthcare would want to leverage price transparency.   

With Signal, you no longer have to worry about:

  • Huge machine readable files that are a pain to store, transfer, and work with
  • Long wait times for a query to finish traversing millions of rows
  • Coordinating with vendors to fulfill requests or pre-load data into a portal
  • Having to request refreshes of previous data

All you need is a log-in to our Serif Health web app and our API will handle the heavy-lifting to give you multiple TB of price transparency data at your fingertips to explore and export. 

Some quick highlights on what we have in Signal:

  • 150+ payers’ core networks available to analyze – including all major national commercial carriers (e.g., United, Cigna, Aetna, BCBS), regional, and exchange plans (e.g., Kaiser, Centene, Oscar)
  • No limits on codes – search any CPT code, HCPCS code, DRG code, or revenue code
  • An extensive menu of filters to refine your searches
    - Taxonomy – search any specialty
    - Regions – search by state or specify sub-regions
    - Billing information – e.g., filter for specific modifiers, institutional / facility fees only, pro fees only
  • Access to Serif Health’s provider directory to compare rates for specific entities
  • Thousands of row-level results generated in seconds – all exportable to .csv
  • Rate distributions with deep-dive ability to click-into outliers

We are so excited to have this out in the wild! If you want a free trial key, please feel free to reach out via hello@serifhealth.com or book a demo on our Calendly: https://calendly.com/serif-health/30min

We would love to hear your feedback and see how we can continue to improve the tool.
