Database and Security

DATA COLLECTION

MD Ranger benchmarks are based on a database of physician contract information. The database is made up of subscriber data, as well as proprietary data drawn from our partner firms’ fair market value opinions and consulting. Subscribers submit their data through a secure online platform that collects information on call coverage, administrative, and hospital-based service contracts.

The MD Ranger database allows us to provide ongoing identification of trends and factors affecting contract terms such as geography, scope of services, and historical rates.
