Leap Orbit Launches as It Expands Health Plan Provider Data Management Offering

LeapOrbit, LLB Columbia, MD January 10, 2022

Leap Orbit, the innovation partner to market-leading health data networks, launched the new website. The website is focused on the Convergent provider data management platform, and signals Convergent’s expanding presence in the health plan market.

Convergent is the last provider directory investment a health plan will ever make. It seamlessly transforms any source of healthcare provider data into a continuously updated single source of truth. By automating health plans’ provider data operations, Convergent eliminates data silos, improves workforce productivity, and ensures no surprise billing. Simply put, Convergent automatically produces flawless provider directories.

“In addition to being the source of billions of dollars a year in waste, the provider data problem negatively affects nearly every corner of a health plan’s operations—not just IT and provider relations, but also network ops and legal and compliance,” said David Finney, partner and co-founder of Leap Orbit. “With Convergent, we’re on a mission to fix that.”

Convergent easily marries imperfect health plan network data files with a proprietary, nationwide set of reference data for clean, up-to-date provider data. By using exclusively modern, cloud-native components and shared reference data, Convergent delivers powerful provider data tools much more affordably than legacy directory systems.

“If we’re going to achieve patient-centered, value-based care, the relationship between the provider and the health plan must be seamless,” said Barry Volin, a veteran health plan executive and CEO and co-founder of the Managed Care Resource Alliance, an assemblage of industry leaders that provide services, products and subject matter expertise to Managed Care organizations. “Solving the perennial problem of bad provider directories is a critical piece of this puzzle.”

In addition to the core cloud-based Provider Data Hub, the Convergent platform includes a growing set of modules to support specific business challenges. These include:

· A mobile-friendly provider search,

· Network data validation,

· Credentialing workflow management,

· FHIR 4.0.1-conformant provider directory API, and

· Reporting and analytics.

Convergent also supports integration with industry-leading, third-party components such as CAQH ProView, DocuSign Contract Lifecycle Management, and Microsoft PowerBI.
