Market Share: This module provides insight into the competition and identifies areas for potential business expansion overall, by case type, payer or any other available field.

Demand Forecasting: Project resource demand based on expected shifts in population demographics to forecast future demand and need for services.

Quality and Efficiency: By evaluating hospital and provider quality and efficiency on a risk-adjusted basis, users are able to assess medical outcomes, resource utilization and the costs and quality of services.
