Health Forecasts debuts healthcare market research and analysis tools
Health Forecasts Inc., a provider of licensed-based health care forecasts, introduced a new online health care market research and analysis product suite – MarketScope, StateScope and DemoScope – this week at HIMSS 2006.

Using Health Forecasts’ exclusive Fourth Generation models, the company’s flagship product MarketScope, provides the industry’s most accurate one-, three- and five-year utilization forecasts, and the industry’s only local market forecasts, for over 10,000 medical services in 508 distinct U.S. markets, the company said.

Unlike national and multi-state models used in traditional healthcare forecasting, the Fourth Generation models factor in proprietary local market adjustments for physician supply and access, enduring market variations and medical technology adoption rates.

The other two products, StateScope and DemoScope, provide online access and analysis of nationwide state hospital data and demographic data, respectively.

Through any web-enabled PC, the entire suite of products from Health Forecasts features a customized data visualization platform that is unmatched for flexibility, ease of use and value.
